Lisa Murkowski Sells Out To Big Oil - Blocks Liability Cap Expansion!

Sometimes I think Alaska doesn't see itself as a state.  Their Senator, Lisa Murkowski must be completely in the pocket of the oil companies to do this.  Huffington Post reports:
A bill to increase the liability cap for oil spills from $75 million to $10 billion was defeated Thursday by Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska.
Why now?  And why such a low cap?  Personally I think there should be no cap on liability for these guys if they drill without a permit or proper safety precautions like BP. 

Oh and Lisa?  Murkowski, a drilling supporter, has received almost $300,000 in campaign contributions from the oil and gas industry.Can you say SELL OUT YOUR COUNTRY?

I just called Senator Murkowski’s office at 202-224-6665 and gave her a piece of my mind.
I told her answering machine that if the taxpayers get stuck with one dime for the cleanup and restoration of environment and businesses affected, she should take a mop and bucket and go down the the gulf to clean up the mess herself.
