    This is how we create jobs. Make more rules so businesses have to hire more people to deal with the new EPA rules. Also this is good because the EPA can help government select which businesses can be shut down and which can ruled to death by the EPA given a companies political contributions record. What you do not have a job… blame th eEPA…. the kids should not let this person speak!

      There are some things more important than jobs. Like the environment, for example. But there’s no reason that the EPA and businesses can’t work together to strike a balance between environment and economy. Not letting someone speak is not the answer.

      Our liberal college systems are such a joke. The EPA violates property rights and helps increase prices, furthering our economic woes. See the debacle California truck drivers are facing with new requirements on emissions concerning CO2. However, the EPA blatantly bypassed any independent studies confirming the potential damage created by CO2 from automobiles. This is a requirement of the 1979 law passed for the EPA. Truckers are looking at $100k modifications just to stay legal. That means accessing more credit for experienced drivers or SOL for those who don’t have it and can’t afford out-of-pocket expenses. See already inflated food prices and other goods continue to rise.
