BP Accuses Deepwater Horizon Settlement Victims Of Taking ‘Money They Don’t Deserve’

Does this mean BP will be returning some of their tax breaks? Didn't think so.

I guess BP never had to sign or otherwise comply with a non-disclosure agreement. And I'm also guessing the full page whine's been part of their strategy all along.

FYI, I don't doubt, if you look closely enough, you'll find someone somewhere with an at-best dubious claim (you see plenty of billboards and television ad soliciting claimants)...but on the other hand, it's not like BP didn't lie through their teeth from the moment the rig exploded.

Maybe that's what their ad should say -- "Takes one to know one."

As part of the settlement, BP's CEO and entire board of directors should have to publicly eat big bags of salted dicks.

i think CEO's and boards all of them need to be put on a minimum wage track for a year. the whole 2% have to live like the bottom. taxes go back to eisenhower levels. or the guillotine. their choice.

The article at Think Progress notes that BP is incurring "hefty" legal bills and shelling out for PR to burnish their image. But for every million dollars in ads and lawyers BP pays for, somebody somewhere in Accounting has probably figured that BP shaves another $100 million off of settlement payouts.

So this is winning.
