Raise Oil liability Cap sign now

Raise the Oil Liability Cap!!

Make them clean up the mess that they created.

What's fair is fair!

They are a mulitbillion dollar company and they should be responsible and accountable for the damage that they create.

An NPR Report states:

Ever since Congress passed the Oil Pollution Act of 1990, there's been a cap on liability for drilling accidents: $75 million. And that means that while BP would be required to pay for the cleanup, it would not necessarily have to pay 100 cents on the dollar to all the businesses and property owners who might win lawsuits claiming that they were damaged by the spill - that amount is capped.

There's a move in Congress to raise the cap from $75 million to $10 billion. New Jersey Senator Robert Menendez, a Democrat, is one of the leaders of that effort.

BP made $5.6 billion in the first three months of this year in profits, I think those companies can sustain a larger liability cap. And it is a way of disciplining companies to think about what they do..

MAKE IT RIGHT, GET ON BOARD AND PETITION FOR BP TO PAY FOR THE PROBLEM THEY CREATED. There has to be accountability and responsibility taken.

Thank you for your support. Lets do some good.
