Snort. Robert Reich argues that the only way the American public can be kept informed about the BP oil spill is to have the transparency-challenged Obama administration take over the company — through a “temporary receivership.”
Banking. Auto manufacturing. Health care. Now oil. There’s no such thing as a “temporary” government power grab, let alone a “temporary receivership” in the hands of Team Obama control freaks:
It’s time for the federal government to put BP under temporary receivership, which gives the government authority to take over BP’s operations in the Gulf of Mexico until the gusher is stopped. This is the only way the public know what’s going on, be confident enough resources are being put to stopping the gusher, ensure BP’s strategy is correct, know the government has enough clout to force BP to use a different one if necessary, and be sure the President is ultimately in charge.
You know who’s tickled pink (or rather, red) by Reich’s proposal?
