Our Senator "Lease A Murkowski" Protects BP's Profits... And Her Campaign War Chest

A bill that would increase the liability cap for oil spills from the current $75 million to $10 billion was defeated Thursday by our own Sen. Lisa Murkowski.

Lisa maintains that anyone with a damages claim against an oil company for a spill can "go to court" to collect it.

That worked out real well in the Exxon Valdez case, didn't it, Lisa?

A couple of facts:

BP's profits are $93 million per day

In her tenure as a US Senator (since 2004), Murkowski has received over $400 thousand from the oil and gas industry.

You can draw your own conclusions, but it sure appears "Lease A's" allegiance is to BP... not to Alaskans, or Americans everywhere.

I just called Senator Murkowski’s office at 202-224-6665 and gave her a piece of my mind.
I told her answering machine that if the taxpayers get stuck with one dime for the cleanup and restoration of environment and businesses affected, she should take a mop and bucket and go down the the gulf to clean up the mess herself.
