THIS IS DISGUSTING!~

WASHINGTON, May 22 (Reuters) - The man who led President Donald Trump's transition team for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Myron Ebell, told a conservative conference last month that the new administration is moving too slowly to unravel climate change regulations.

In closed-door remarks to members of the conservative Jefferson Institute in Virginia on April 18, a recording of which was obtained by Reuters, Ebell said Trump's administration had made a series of missteps, including delays in appointing key EPA officials, that could hamper efforts to cut red tape for industry.

"This is an impending disaster for the Trump administration," Ebell, a prominent climate change doubter, said in the recording provided to the Center for Media and Democracy and shared with Reuters.

Unless something changes, the EPA will still terrorize the businesses of America. Congress just increased their budget!

EPA to drop 3,000 jobs as Upper Midwest gets its reward for helping Trump

Republicans have never been able to show that environmental regulations are actually job killers. But as Politico reports, Scott Pruitt’s moves to destroy the EPA certainly are costing some jobs.

President Donald Trump’s proposed cutbacks to the Environmental Protection Agency may include the closure of the agency’s regional office in Chicago, a move that could undermine the agency’s ability to monitor pollution in the Great Lakes and curtail its ability to implement enforcement actions against coal-fired power plant owners in the six-state region. …

Under the administration’s plan, 3,000 EPA employees nationwide would lose their jobs. Closing the Chicago office, and eliminating its 1,000 positions, would help accomplish that goal. 

Of course, by Republican measures, those EPA employees working to make sure Americans have clean water, clean air, and decent living conditions aren’t doing realjobs. And by extension the people those EPA workers rent homes from, and buy groceries from, and support in a hundred other ways, don’t have real jobs. Neither do the people that those people support. Only ignoring the environment and the public good can create a real job.

WARNING: Trump’s EPA Secretary Will Have ‘16,000 Employees Working Against Him’

This is why the EPA needs to be gutted and 75% of all employees be let go! BAN THE NAZI-LIKE EPA- IRS and OSHA!

image from cdn01.dailycaller.comPALM SPRINGS, CALIF. — When likely EPA Secretary Scott Pruitt walks into his first day at the office, “He’ll have 16,000 employees working against him,” Sen. James Lankford told a large gathering of libertarian donors Saturday evening.

“And I expect a flood of lawsuits over everything he does.”

Pruitt, who has been nominated to lead the EPA by President Donald Trump, is the attorney general of Lankford’s state, Oklahoma. He has faced fierce opposition from the environmentalist left.

Lankford, who chairs the Senate Oversight Subcommittee on Energy Policy, Health Care and Entitlements, was joined on stage by Sens. Mike Lee and Pat Toomey. Their panel, moderated by Americans for Prosperity President Tim Phillips, was during a dinner on day one of Charles and David Koch’s libertarian Seminar Network in Palm Springs, Calif. (RELATED: Mike Lee Is Certain The Senate Will Confirm Trump’s Supreme Court Nominee)

The Epa, and almost all so-called state, local and federal safety agencies are actually BIG GOVT Totalitarian plans supported by BIG BUSINESS to put the little guy out of business!   ALL OF THESE AGENCIES NEED TO BE REIGNED IN!

Here's One Example Of Regulations Killing A Small Business

When the Environmental Protection Agency issued a new regulation in April 2010 requiring housing contractors to take extra precautions around hazardous lead paint, businesswoman Kathy Faia followed it to the letter of the law.

One of her construction workers in Kenner, La., attended classes to become government-certified in the new procedures.

She purchased expensive Star-Trek-like coveralls with goggles, rubber gloves, hoods and rubber boots for her workers.

And she instructed her remodeling crews to literally enshroud houses they were working in a plastic bubble wrap to prevent lead paint flakes, which potentially can cause damage to the brain and nervous system, from escaping into the atmosphere.

A little more than than a year, Faia says her small, family-owned construction business is financially ruined.
