Statements about Oil Spill

The White House has "refused" international help in dealing with the oil spill.

Alex Sink was "the first official who said that BP should pay $25 million for an ad campaign to promote Florida tourism."

After the oil spill, Congressman Adam Putnam "doubled down saying all energy sources, including oil drilling in the Gulf, should be considered just days after the oil spill started."

"Rick Scott's even saying he wants more offshore drilling."

"Incoming House Speaker Dean Cannon and incoming Senate President Mike Haridopolos have said they plan to champion efforts next legislative session to allow oil rigs off Florida's coast."

"The governor switched his position once again on offshore oil drilling."
