It is sad that the E.P.A instituted by a republican President, Nixon, is being shredded by the GOP of today. Several studies have shown that regulations are not “job killers” they often create jobs because they create a demand for new positions which is good for the economy because for every job created, more revenue in taxes and more cash circulating in the economy. Moreover, we have seen that you cannot trust companies, one iota, to regulate themselves vis a vis the environment, B.P anyone? I find it completely acceptable to have the health and safety of our environment under the purview our government, it is their job. Anyway, what is the GOP doing wasting our time with trying to dismantle the E.P.A instead of focusing on legitimate proposals for jobs like the American Jobs Act. I know that they will come back with the lame excuse that getting rid of the E.P.A will produce jobs but the evidence doesn’t support that and I find it horrible that they want to gut the environment in spite of it all, this just shows that they are all beholden to big oil and natural gas.
