No end to the corruption in this Administration

Dave Sirota on the criminal Bush Admin’s protection of the oil companies as they pick your pockets. Expect more when they come crying to him after Rita takes out some of their resources:

Good news: Democratic governors have embarrassed the federal government into acknowledging the oil price gouging issue, as the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) today announced a formal probe.

Bad news: President Bush made sure to preempt any real investigation into price gouging by his financial backers in the oil/gas industry when last year he appointed a former ChevronTexaco lawyer, Deborah Majoras, to head the FTC.

Some would argue that any investigation – no matter how rigged – is better than no investigation. But, then, I’m not so sure, especially when we inevitably see in a few weeks an oil-industry-written FTC report that gives a government stamp of approval to oil industry profiteering.
