Drilling Moratorium Is Poor Policy

Editor:

Seems like many of the decisions made by President Obama and his administration during this oil spill crisis have been rash and poorly managed. That is why I was ecstatic to see that the drilling moratorium imposed by the president was struck down by the courts. It was a poor policy to begin with, as we shouldn’t be making life tougher for the communities and families along the Gulf Coast.

I read recently that over 150,000 jobs were put in danger thanks to that moratorium. Putting them back to work is a positive first step to recovery. Let’s hope that the Obama administration realizes that before they make any other rash policy decisions.

Struck down by a district court judge heavily invested in a company called Blackrock, which owns nearly 1,200,000,000 shares in BP. That judge should have recused himself from the case, and I hope the Justice Department aggressively appeals the decision and gets the moratorium restored because of it.
