    once the claims system is active, those who have sustained losses will be able to get paid
    and even if they file claims for amounts greater than BP has then funded the escrow, the government can pony up the cash knowing that BP will cover those claims - for a total not to exceed $20 billion. without cost to the American tax payer

    it will NOT take years for them to file a valid claim and receive restitution from the $20 billion escrowed
    this assures that BP will cover the initial claims, at least to the amount of $20 billion

    and for some reason, those wingers - the ones who normally whine about government spending - are actually complaining because the company responsible for this maliase, BP, is stepping up and taking responsibility for the result of the calamity that oil company caused
    those wingers either would prefer the government cover the expense of those claims, or expect the claimants to realize nothing to cover their losses
    as with your posts, that makes no sense
    Dude, BP has already been paying claims.

    It's so irritating when you people comment without knowing the facts.

    This guy is a grade A moron. He doesn't think Global Warming is real saying it is not God's will. Intriguing Mr. Barton, what is God's will since you seem to know?

    Still I know the Liberal media has probably had a field day with this, I know this is just one crazy nut who just happens to be Republican though.

    For anyone that is interested in the truth, here is the official BP claims page.
    It has been up for quite a while because BP has been processing claims for quite some time.

    I hope the have a BS detector - a lot of people will be trying to take advantage of this situation to scheme money.

    dude, were they paying claims with an escrowed fund of $20 billion to assure claim obligations would be forthcoming?

    and dude, what exactly is the existing BP apparatus to pay such claims ... the apparatus which pre-existed the mechanism to pay claims from the $20 billion in escrow

    bugs me too, to have to respond rto people who know nothing about which they post

    IMO.... BP should tell Obama to **** himself. If Obama thinks, he can do better have at it. We quit and then just pull out of the USA completely.

    I have no doubt that BP is doing everything possibly to stop the oil from flowing out of the damn hole...and all the bull**** political posturing on part of Obama in the world ain't going to get the hole stopped up any faster. Obama is using the opportunity to SQUEEZE, the wealth of a major world company.

    Sorry, Harry, but if we really want to know the TRUTH, we need to hear directly from people who have filed claims.

    Of course BP is going report back that everything is peachy, but we know that's not the way some people see it.

    The truth is often in the middle.

    Isn't it, though?

    BP Payout Is Less Than 12% of Claims Filed, Government Report Says

    Two months have passed since BP's (BP) horrific oil spill sent a wave of environmental damage and economic chaos along the Gulf Coast, but to date the oil company has paid out less than 12% of the claims filed, a House Judiciary Committee report released Friday stated.

    As of Tuesday, BP had paid $71 million of the estimated $600 million in claims filed by individuals and businesses since the disaster began April 20. The Judiciary Committee is investigating BP's claims process and its effectiveness in issuing payouts to folks and business that have been damaged by the spill.

    BP is paying the claims out of their bank account using a claim structure they set up.

    What does it matter, if they are paying?

    That escrow fund is to be paid into over 3 years.

    Glinda just posted something, that shows they are already paying.
    Maybe not as swiftly as some people want but they are paying more than the legal requirement.
