*Warning: The following comments may make you want to punch a kitten.
“”It is generally not the practice of this country to change the laws after the game,” said Tom Donohue, the president of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. “. . . Everybody is going to contribute to this clean up. We are all going to have to do it. We are going to have to get the money from the government and from the companies and we will figure out a way to do that.”
Let’s all give a collective side eye like granny:
And that’s not all. House Minority Leader John Boehner got on the stupid train as well. Here’s the original question with this quote:
Brian Beutler: “Do you agree with Tom Donohue of the Chamber that the government and taxpayers should pitch in to clean up the oil spill?”
‘In response to a question from TPMDC, House Minority Leader John Boehner said he believes taxpayers should help pick up the tab for the clean up.
“I think the people responsible in the oil spill–BP and the federal government–should take full responsibility for what’s happening there,” Boehner said at his weekly press conference this morning.’
Nice try guys! Using socialism to bail out your friends and then demonize socialism in your political talking points! Haha!
