    But, when Bush didn't come up with the cash, it was time for impeachment.

    Care to give us some details about your point?

    Meanwhile, out here in the real world, the insurace company(s) will have to be sued and it's going to take a couple years to get that money.

    The government coild go ahead and put up some front money, then the insurance company could pay it back once the law suit is settled, but no, it's better to do nothing and blame the private sector for government incompetance.

    How much money did the government spend on the oil spill?

    Probably a lot more since it affected multiple states. However, when a single problem occurred, like that article references in California, FEMA seems to not give much money.

    A lot more, because Obama was in his first term and wanted to show up the evil oil companies.

    In 2010, for example, officials denied a request for millions in aid after a gas pipeline explosion that consumed a Northern California neighborhood.
    That was his first term too.

    How is a private company who flouted safety laws causing an explosion that killed many and injured even more proof that the private sector is good, but government is incompetent?

    You have to have a VERY upside-down view of the world to look at a disaster created by private sector negligence and call it government incompetence. There is no way that you could look at this disaster and come up with that view. UNLESS, you're talking about the incompetence of a Texas law that doesn't require chemical plants to have ANY liability insurance. In this case, the plant owners only had $1 million in liability - which will come nowhere near fixing what they destroyed with their negligence and incompetence.

    Only now that they want money from US taxpayers, do Texans realize that maybe they should actually regulate dangerous industries.
