There will be lots more to write on this topic, but here's a snippet at this link: After Congress passed the RESTORE Act to direct any monies from a federal lawsuit against BP (related to the oil rig blowout) to the affected Gulf States according to a formula set in the act, the Obama administration, as is its wont, is trying to make an end run against a law the president himself signed, by reaching a legal settlement with BP that directs the money elsewhere so the feds have control of it.
This is an outrage. My own local congressman, Jo Bonner of Mobile, AL, who is a bulldog when riled up in a righteous cause, is leading an effort to stop the administration's lawless money grab. More on the issue at this link. And more to come soon. But when I saw the Huff Post feature this story prominently, (the link in the first graph), I thought it was time to at least highlight it now while planning to do more with it later.
How many times will this administration try to bypass the letter and/or spirit of the laws of the land?
