Kenneth Feinberg on Gulf Coast Claims Process, One Year After Spill

Wednesday, April 20, 2011

Today marks one year since the Deepwater oil rig exploded, leaking oil into the Gulf. More than half a million people say that BP owes them money, and many of them say the compensation process is unfair and is taking too long. Kenneth Feinberg is in charge of the $20 billion in compensation fund. He responds to Gulf residents who say the process isn't fair.

Is Feinberg's quote above this year's parallel to last year's words by CEO Tony Hayward, about how all this has made him wish he could get his life back? It has come to a critical point: either action be taken against wayward "TBTF" corporations (and banks) or this country is headed downhill.
