As Obama continues to push the moratorium, the Gulf region economy suffers.
"A clear majority continued to support drilling in American waters even during the height of the spill, when oil was gushing uncontrollably and dying birds headlined network newscasts. Pollsters at Rasmussen reported on Aug. 4 that "since the oil-rig explosion that caused the massive oil leak, support for offshore drilling has ranged from 56 percent to 64 percent." That's fairly consistent with the percentages in April of this year, just before the spill, and not a huge drop-off from the 72 percent that supported it back in the summer of 2008, when pump prices topped $4 a gallon."
Many insurance companies sell auto insurance to drivers who don't have state-issued licenses. One of their reasons is that there's no social benefit to keeping illegal immigrants from being insured.
"Most states prevent illegals from obtaining licenses. Does this stop them from driving? No. It only makes it more likely that they will not understand the traffic laws and will be more likely to cause an accident. At least, when uneducated driver (not necessarily through any fault of their own), they might have insurance."
