American insurance checkbook payouts

Utter, utter cnuts.
Given that Obama is trying to reform the financial system and is probably looking for a popular cause which'll allow him to conduct a spot of populist smiting of financial instiutions (prior to the mid-terms), might this not be the best time for the American public to learn of this?

As this would probably be a popular cause (I presume that the usual, highly admirable, 'screw our troops and we'll screw you' attitude of the vast majority of the American electorate is as strong as ever) which doesn't require some oil company to come up with technology to rectify the problem and then hope for good weather, and which gives senators the chance to crucify senior executives (who haven't a chance of justifying this) in televised hearings they can't decline to attend, could this er... get interesting?
