Robert Reich's Un-work-able Proposal

Former Secretary of Labor Robert Reich says, "Put Jobless Young People to Work Cleaning Up BP's Mess and Order BP to Pay" ...

And then what? Who's really going to pay them when BP doesn't, which they won't? The government? Uh-huh. That's doubtless precisely what BP wants: the government to pay for the cleanup.

Reich is rarely as naive as he has been regarding BP. He needs to take a long, hard look at who they really are, and contemplate the likelihood of their following through on any court order imposed on them. It ain't gonna happen unless their execs are tossed in jail. Nothing less will make them pay.
