Administration about to lift ban on deep water drilling
This is going to create a lot of controversy.
Fox News is reporting that the Interior Department will soon, probably today, make an announcement about the ban on deep water drilling the Obama administration put into place after the BP Deepwater Horizon oil drill explosion in the Gulf of Mexico. Speculation is that the ban will be lifted.
Environmentalists are sure to argue that Obama has forsaken them - and the environment. But those who have been out of work since the moratorium was in place - and I'm not just talking about oil rig workers but those whose jobs support the drilling - will be celebrating.
