Sen. Lemieux of Florida will be requesting that the Jones Act be ignored so that the oil skimmers can get access to the Gulf spill. The Senator was interviewed on Fox and Friends this AM.
He met last week with the POTUS. Unbelievable as it may sound, Obama actually told him the skimmers couldn't be realeased because they might be needed for an oil spill???!!!
And what exactly is this thing in the Gulf?
There is a monster skimmer, The Whale, from Taiwan which has been sitting in a Virginia dock for the last month waiting for permission. It is on its way now but doesn't know if it will be able to work unless the POTUS overrides the Jones Act. Thing could clean up the mess like a lawnmower riding over grass.
Dutch skimmers sat on stand-by since May 4 waiting to help. Check below.
These people in our government that delayed this need to be FIRED!!
