Posted on 06/08/2010 7:16:47 PM PDT by Justaham
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told committee chairmen on Tuesday that she wants Congress to finish a legislative response to the Gulf oil spill before lawmakers leave for the August recess.
The Speaker convened a meeting of nine committee chiefs to coordinate the Houses efforts to address the oil gusher that has consumed the nations attention for weeks and threatens to ravage the ecology and economy of the Gulf Coast.
Among the measures discussed were proposals to overhaul regulation of the oil industry and dramatically raise or eliminate the current cap on damages that oil companies must pay. In the weeks since the oil spill began, House Democrats have convened hearings and released a bevy of legislative proposals relating to compensation, industry oversight and cleanup responsibility for the disaster.

I hope someone ‘spills her Botox’ soon.
Of course she does. Her time’s running out.
She wants a spill bill? What about the one that’s already in effect? Oh nevermind, they ignored it.
Knee-jerk politics never work ... Obamacare is a great example.
She should call it “The Buffoons Pass Gas Bill”. What a bunch of worthless pukes. I haven’t seen any of them down there cleaning this mess up. They just sit on their asses in Washington being obnoxious.
Geez this IDIOT really needs to get botox injections in the brain. With her brain in drive she could kill what is left of the economy in 2 months. Perhaps the botox would numb her brain.
NANCY WHAT THE OIL INDUSTRY NEEDS IS LESS GOVT...LESS EPA...LESS YOU!!!!!
Bend over everyone. Here it comes!!!
This could be as bad as the ‘oil spill’ itself!
It will be interesting to see how the Dims will explain that an ex post facto bill is not an ex post facto bill.
Hey you socialist demoRAT bastards, here’s a novel idea! How about a BP oil bill that will raise taxes, spend hundreds of billions of dollars, create numerous additional federal bureaucracies & thousands of new regulations, to help cap the spill & clean up? Yah, that will work...... s/
Granny Government to the rescue!
Praise the Word and pass the rotten tomatoes!
I nominate Pelosi as Obama’s first target.
