-Florida’s Attorney General Requests Obama To Waive Jones Act To Hasten Oil Spill Efforts « Tarpon's Swamp
Our govt is turning down all offers of help from countries that have equipment who can recover the oil more efficiently and faster, and all kinds of other offers to help, because they aren't "union". There is some regulation that protects the work to our union workers....a line Obama dare not cross because they are who put him in office. It's the Jones Act (here it is) WTH! Who gives a damn if they are union? This current batch of Feds finally found a law they don't want to break?? We have a catastrophic disaster going on! All hands on deck! The Federal Govt is OUT OF CONTROL and so are the Unions.
