Ed Markey is the only person in America who is not happy that BP has capped the Deepwater Horizon oil well in the Gulf. Markey is insisting that BP remove the cap.
Markey is apparently only concerned with maximizing the revenue to the Treasury, not about the citizens of the gulf, jobs in the region and effected animals. What a humanitarian!
The Times-Picayune (Mark Schleifstein) on 7/18/10 reports:
But at least one vocal critic warned that the cap may limit the ability of federal officials to determine how much it should fine BP for the release of oil in the Gulf, and of others to determine damages to businesses and natural resources.
On Sunday, U.S. Rep. Ed Markey, D-Mass., warned that the alternate system to allow oil to flow through the cap structure and risers to the surface for collection could be the last chance to get accurate figures of how much oil has been released since the well blowout on April 20.
