We aren't finished with this.
BP and Transocean and others need to address the safety issues and lousy management issues that caused this problem in the first place. As evidenced by other energy companies (coal mines, for instance), there has been reduced vigilance across the board over the last two decades.
It isn't government's responsibility to see that businesses behave responsibly, but there are times that a few spoil things for everybody. If energy businesses want government out of their business, then they had better begin effective policing of themselves (without internal lobbying to gain advantage).
