So now the GOP wants to abolish the EPA. Because you know, state’s rights and all that sort of thing! We just have to have that there small government, don’t we?
As in, government small enough to fit into a woman’s uterus: the congressman introducing this bill is–you guessed it–“pro-life”. I think someone needs to remind him that fetuses will eventually be born and might appreciate a nice, clean, healthy planet to live upon. But something tells me that this little fact would fly right over this dipstick’s head.
Ten to one, this won’t pass. But it is terrifying as hell that this would even be considered. It’s bad enough that we have a climate change denier in the White House but this is absolutely frightening.
It’s going to be a long four years.
I propose that those who eliminate environmental regulations should live in polluted areas like Houston, TX, Love Canal, NY or Louisiana’s Cancer Alley. I’m sure Scott Pruitt and The Koch Brothers would relocate there in a heartbeat…:)
