  • US judge okays BP plea, $4b penalty in oil spill



    The government has awarded BP over 50 federal leases since the Deepwater Horizon accident," said BP, which is the largest investor and deepwater leaseholder in the Gulf of Mexico with interests in 700 blocks and seven rigs now operating there.

    BP has already written off as much as $11.8 billion in their oil spill clean up costs, directly shifting that tax burden onto U.S. citizens.  This additional fine would also be tax-deductible.  


    What do we get for it?  Austerity.
