Kendall Cook-Stancil: Well, maybe one day people will realize that Congress is a bigger problem with America than presidents are. Presidents come and go every four to eight years. But the Congress is the people in charge of these things, and look what happens. And they get to sit on the Hill for 20 to 40 years. When will people see what the real problem is?
Jacob Leblanc: Term limits. Lets go.
Kendall Cook-Stancil: I say four to eight years, just like a president.
Tim Morris: Exactly! Can’t anyone drain the swamp but us, the average working American.
Kendall Cook-Stancil: That what I try to tell people, too. Trump says drain the swamp , but he can only do so much. When it comes to Congress, that is up to us.
Joe Chaisson: Term limits. Finally something you and I agree on.
Jacob Leblanc: There’s common ground everywhere. We just have to talk long enough to find it.
Francis J DaRoza: Drain the swamp? Heck, the swamp has been placed on steroids over the last year!
Jacob Leblanc: Yeah, why not. Companies are obviously more important than individuals and environments.
Jennifer Smith: I mean, who needs the Louisiana Gulf Coast anyway?
Chris Matherne: If you think an actual spill response will cease, then you're truly as ignorant as your comment.
Ron Harding: Now we have to beg the question: Who will pay for it? Granted, there’s money in the coffers now, but these things don’t happen on schedule. If money were to run out, who would foot the bill?
Chris Matherne The oil companies will, just like the government mandates. If you don't believe me, look it up.
John Rozic: The same ones building the wall.
Arthur Houston: And the trail lawyers are getting rich. Come on, man. Really? And put the picture of the worst president in the U.S. history on the article. Put 20 percent of people in Terrebonne Parish out of work. The law changed, and the oil companies are responsible to clean up their own messes. We all know what happens if you get government involved.
Grant Doiron: I agree with you 100 percent. When I saw the article, I was going to pass it up because everything The Courier puts out is always negative toward President Trump. But I have to tell you this: There is one thing they will never post or write an article on, and that is to admit one thing: The president of the United States of America is Donald Trump, and there is nothing they can do about it.
Arthur Houston: Really, the money to fix pumps? Where did it go? Mayor Nagin is in jail stealing money. And the money that was gotten for the Katrina fix came from Republicans. Or did everyone forget who controlled the House back in 2005 through the present. The House passes all funding bills. It's their job. And 2006-08, the key recovery period, the president of the U.S. was George Bush. Does everyone forget everything?
Ashley Bergeron: Lay off Fox News.
Steve Guin: Y’all actually think spill response will stop because of this?
Chris Matherne: Ignorance is bliss, and we are in a blissful society.
Craig Dykes: These are the same people commenting.
Darryll Domangue: Well, right now we need something that might spur some exploration and put some people back to work. They can open up the Gulf as much as they want, but nowadays, if it doesn’t make financial sense, Big Oil won’t just jump in and explore as in the past.
Stephen Philip: Man, I’m all for drilling because of our economy, but why let that tax expire on a billion dollar industry?
Brian J. Ott: The fund has a $5.75 billion surplus. That is plenty to clean up and respond to any oil spill and pay any lawsuits. That 9 cents a barrel can go a long way in creating more oilfield jobs.
Brady Mayers: Well of course all these tax breaks are for foreign-owned oil companies, which make up 90 percent of the tract leasing offshore, I don’t doubt this one bit! No one is looking at our or our children’s futures.
Rhonda Lovell: Where do California, Washington and Oregon get the oil to supply each respective state and its inhabitants?
Because these states will file lawsuits to stop any and all drilling off their coasts.
Glenn Arceneaux:About time.
