Okay, it seems like we know what Boehner meant. It seems he thinks BP should be on the line for everything. But only up to $75 million once the oil itself if cleaned up.
Basically, the position is that BP should pay for removing the oil from the places that it went. But if the oil broke your stuff or put you out of business or whatever, BP’s liability for that should stay capped at $75 million.
