How much do you want to bet that BP will go bankrupt and walk away from the mess in the Gulf? The government has sent BP the first part of the clean up bill, 69 million dollars. For what? The mess is getting worse. The environment is ruined, people's livelihoods are gone. How many years until the Gulf ecosystem is viable again? Who is going to support these families? They shouldn't be held responsible for their bills. Will BP take over paying their mortgages, college payments, utility bills, medical, food?
I say BP walks away -- clean and free. I say its executive officers will continue to live high and mighty while those folks along the Gulf lose everything.
BP -- feel free to prove me wrong.
