Republican Senator James Inhofe has stepped up to the plate yet again for big oil, pledging a Republican filibuster against legislation offered by New Jersey’s Robert Menendez that would completely lift the $75 million liability cap currently protecting big oil companies from claims of economic damage from oil spills.
Paraphrasing John Cole, I thought the Republicans supported the free market in which corporations were unregulated and allowed to fail without government meddling.
Meanwhile, alleged free market state’s rights small government southern Republican politicians continue to demand federal help and socialized federal money — redistributed wealth from Pennsylvania and Illinois and New York and Massachusetts with all of its bleeding heart tree-hugging environmental wacko liberals.
Suck it, Republicans. Do they even recognize how staggeringly hypocritical and ridiculous this is?
