I learned an early lesson long before I had knew I was learning: if I messed it up, I cleaned it up. Why should we even be discussing financial caps for corporate responsibility? Shouldn't this allow us to focus on reasons to end foreign oil dependency and more research for alternative energy resources? Ms. Murkowski's right: lift all caps on corporate exposure. If you're big enough to play in the game, don't develop your response and budget pratfalls on the US public's position to pay. We need more leadership like Ms. Murkowski, willing to examine the issues and act responsibly rather than throw untested and untried solutions on a knee-jerk whim. Congress, stop reacting, lift all caps on corporate fiscal responsibility, get proactive, and start regulating the 3000+ rigs in the Gulf who are still drilling before this happens again.
