Environmental Attorney Mike Papantonio explains to MSNBC's "The Ed Show" how Bush-Cheney Deregulation directly led to the British Petroleum Oil Spill in the Gulf of Mexico, by allowing Big Oil to skip a simple and inexpensive safety measure that many other nations require. The BP spill was threatening the gulf from Louisiana to Florida at the time this video was uploaded. "License To Spill" was granted by his majesty, then-vice president Dick Cheney at his infamous closed-door meeting with oil company executives (otherwise known as "cheney's base").
Never forget, 11 Workers were killed in the explosion on the Deepwater Horizon Oil Rig that led to the spill. Remember that the next time you see someone driving a Hummer or an Escalade. Remember them as we pay up to $4/gallon for gasoline this summer, maybe more.
