No wonder payout czar Feinberg’s a succeessful well-connected insider DC attorney. He’s so slick he’s decreed the fisherman who contracted to work cleaning up the poisons BP spews will have their income from that work deducted. From what? From what ever settlement he may award them for damages…damages from BP’s oil apocalypse.
Yep, Czar Feinberg, in his generosity, demands the fisherman cleaning up BP’s posions from our public waters do their work for free. Such an opportunity! Shock Doctrine, meet Czar Doctrine: Feinberg’s gone neo-feudal on the Gulf. This Czar’s using the job Obama and BP’s top man picked him for to get back to his roots….in 16th centruy Russia. Is that where the President hopes to bring the wounded Gulf?
