From Gush to Slush to Flush – Washington Sewer Overflows

I just posted to my buddy Fred Benson that this fund was a Slush fund.  Odd how this article showed up.  The libs are going crazy over it in the comment section. 

#Comments_Container: “WASHINGTON — A day after top BP officials met with President Barack Obama at the White House and agreed to set up a $20 billion compensation fund, Rep. Joe Barton, R-Texas called the money a ‘shakedown’ of the company and apologized for the president’s action.

Barton, the ranking Republican on the House Energy and Commerce committee, told BP CEO Tony Hayward Thursday morning that he was sorry about what the president had done. The money is a ‘slush fund,’ Barton said, and ‘unprecedented in our nation’s history.’

‘I do not want to live in a country where anything a citizen or corporation does something that is … wrong is subject to some sort of political pressure, that again, in my words, amounts to a shakedown,’ said Barton.”

My thoughts exactly.
