Comments on: Boom or bust in oil spill fight Global environmental challenges Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:14:55 +0000 hourly 1 By: 5280hi Fri, 28 May 2010 15:22:44 +0000 What have the elected GOP leaders of the Gulf States, Boo hoo Bobby Jindahl, Haley Barbour, Saxby Chambliss, etc – been doing with all the royalty money they collected from oil & gas companies for the privelege of decades of drilling? By now, they should have a huge slush fund put aside to deal with emergencies. But NO. Instead, the GOP leasdership looks to the Feds to save them. The same thing would be true in Alaska. Ask Lisa Murkowski what type of emergency fund she has developed with all her roaylty money?

What a bunch of lying hypocrites. A death sentence for GOP incumbents is the only answer, and maybe brain transplants for the voters who keep electing these shills.
