The administration is full of it......the workers that support off shore oil and gas workers are in trouble even if the adminisration says they are not.

The proof is in the numbers. Check out unemployment rates in LA. Most of the off shore workers are out of TX, not Louisiana. We just get the washed up crude.

Report: White House altered drilling ban report

"The Interior Department's inspector general says the White House edited a drilling safety report in a way that made it falsely appear that scientists and experts supported the idea of the administration's six-month ban on new drilling.

The inspector general says the editing changes resulted "in the implication that the moratorium recommendation had been peer reviewed." But it hadn't been."
