David Hunt suggests that if you have about a half-hour handy, check out U.S. Rep. (and Senate candidate) Kendrick Meek on the House floor late Tuesday giving an increasingly impassioned speech on the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. He said the cleanup will take years and the government needs to help the Gulf states who are losing tourists and fishing crops.
“I’ll be doggone if we allow these oil executives to come to Congress with $1,200 suits on and say they’re not going to answer questions — and folks back home are suffering,” Meek said.
“If we didn’t let the banks fail, then we shouldn’t let these individuals who work every day and pay taxes (fail),” he continued.
