The possibility of an up on the tax is true, but it is not to pay for this cleanup. It is to fund possible future cleanups caused by companies that do not have the deep pockets that BP has.

The tax is already there at .08 per barrel and there is a fund of 1.5b I believe. This is to put more into the fund since they now see how far reaching one incident can become.

A stupid idea, but that is how I understand it.
