Urge Congress to Defund the EPA!

No agency possesses the power to make law, and yet that is precisely what the EPA has done by placing itself above Congress on all matters relating to energy production and consumption. And it's only getting worse.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is one of the least transparent federal agencies, is based on faulty science, and creates job killing regulations.  The latest example is a set of regulations that are shutting down 285 coal plants, risking a future of rolling brownouts.  Sadly, incoming EPA administrator Gina McCarthy is continuing to lead this fight. 

According to an American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity analysis, the hardest hit states by EPA policy are Ohio, Pennsylvania, Georgia, West Virginia, Virginia, North Carolina, Kentucky, and Indiana. Nationwide, the number of actual plant closures is five times greater than EPA predicted would occur because of its regulations.

Gina McCarthy, the new EPA administrator, is no friend of coal. Nor will she do anything about rolling back the agency’s carbon endangerment finding, which ruled that carbon dioxide, a biological gas necessary for the very existence of life, is a “harmful pollutant” under the terms of the Clean Air Act. 

Nor will she repeal the EPA’s regional haze rule, carbon restrictions on new and existing power plants, and the “National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants” that restricts mercury emissions from plants.

Sue-and-settle arrangements the agency enters with organizations will similarly continue. This is where a group sues demanding that the EPA enforce the law in a new, expanded way and the agency enters into a consent decree with the party, which is signed by a judge. This leaves the agency with new powers under the Clean Air and Water Acts.

No agency possesses the power to make law, and yet that is precisely what the EPA has done by placing itself above Congress on all matters relating to energy production and consumption. And it’s only getting worse. The only option to rein in this rogue agency is to urge Congress to act aggressively and use its power of the purse to defund these regulations. 

You know what to do!  Let’s urge members of Congress to stop the EPA by defunding the agency. Members should refuse to increase the debt ceiling unless these regulations are repealed in full.  We need to encourage job creation, not make it impossible for businesses to prosper. But your representative and senators need to know you stand with them in order to find the courage to act.

So, now the EPA dictates what you can drive. While the rest of the world gets to drive affordable diesel cars that get 70mpg, we only have a hand full of pricey diesel cars. The best manufacture of which is being attacked by the epa! They need to go away!

This will only hurt American's by raising the cost of their utilities. It will also destroy families who will lose much needed jobs. Take the EPA out...do not allow for them to have this kind of power it was never meant for them to run over companies that are trying to provide much needed fuel for Americans. Open your eyes and see the effect this will have on American's.

This agency of the Executive Branch of OUR government, without constitutional authority (read illegally), exercises the power of issuing, and ordering the enforcement of, regulations which have the same power of law. U.S. citizen, U.S. Member of Congress, U.S. Senator, POTUS, and all members of the SCOTUS, PLEASE read Article I, Sec I, Clause I of OUR U.S. Constitution and PLEASE tell me why you are allowing this to occur!!!

The only thing the EPA is protecting are their jobs ! They sacrifice my health for the good of the ozone . My breathing medicine I used for years , was discontinued , because the propellant was eating at the ozone . Yet diesel trucks and manufacturing , airlines and the space program does more damage . Largest piece of government waste I ever seen . Get rid of the EOA now !!!

This org. has destroyed the U.S.manufacturing sector and could care less! It operates more like a cult and is run by radicals that must be stopped. But don't worry...the GOP will do nothing about it! Their leadership sucks.
