    According to that wingnut, a large corperation compensating anyone for damage done to them is redistribution of wealth.

    Bachmann calls oil spill victim escrow account ?a redistribution-of-wealth fund? Minnesota Independent: News. Politics. Media.

    The president just called for creating a fund that would be administered by outsiders, which would be more of a redistribution-of-wealth fund. And now it appears like we’ll be looking at one more gateway for more government control, more money to government. If there is a disaster, why is it that government is the one who always seems to benefit after a disaster, and that’s of course what cap-and-trade would be.

    And she says, "They shouldn't have to be fleeced and make chumps to have to pay".

    WHAT THE FUCK????

    Now we know why Michelle Bachmann wants to "take America back".

    She wants to give America to her corporate Masters, the bitch.

    Republicans need to go back to those lesbian bondage bars for some planning and rethink their position.

    Do you believe that all of this money will go directly to victims and none of it will go to government officials? I ask this as someone who holds Bachmann to the same level as Pelosi...

    It is said it would be handled by an outside panel, and I don't think the fisherman give a shit.
    If Obama said the sky was blue, Bachmann would call him a communist, and say it was green.

    I wonder if anyone had the balls to say the same thing after 9/11?

    Under the agreement, BP will set up an independently operated fund to cover the costs of cleaning up the spill and paying damages to individuals and businesses hurt by the disaster. The fund will be managed by Washington attorney Kenneth Feinberg, who has gained fame as the Treasury's "pay czar" after Wall Street's near meltdown in 2008 and as the overseer of payments to families of victims after the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

    BP also agreed to set aside $100 million to pay lost wages to oil rig workers idled by a temporary halt to new deep-sea oil drilling. In a briefing with reporters after the meeting, the company said its liability for lost wages would be limited to that amount.

    $20 billion BP fund may not cover all costs - U.S. business- msnbc.com

    I don't see very much government involvement.. What I do see is Obama making BP pay. Bachmann is a moron.

    Obama knows if Republicans are involved, people in the gulf would get NOTHING. Those lesbian bondage bars are expensive. Have you seen the buffet?

    That's why Obama is going to the outside.

    You know Republicans would filibuster any money for the Gulf Victims. I bet, if they had their way, they would make America pay for the oil rig damage.

    If she's so evil why not quote her accurately?

    They shouldn’t have to be fleeced and make chumps to have to pay for perpetual unemployment and all the rest — they’ve got to be legitimate claims.

    And, of course, she is 100% correct. As always.
