Senate Democrats today asked unanimous consent to pass legislation that would give the BP Oil Spill Commission the subpoena power it needs to do its job. “Frankly, it’s time we have a vote after so many Republican objections to this commonsense legislation,” said Sen. Robert Menendez. “[This bill] asserts that we want to protect those families, taxpayers, not oil company profits.”
The US House of Representatives voted 420 to 1 to give the presidential commission investigating the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico full subpoena power.
In a shocking betrayal of trust, the Senate blocked it.
No subpoena powers. No real investigation.
