  1. Does it matter? The EPA has already demonstrated that it will enact policy based on bad science merely because it is science that agrees with it’s regulatory vision. What’s good for America isn’t necessarily good for the EPA.

  2. Unfortunately that probably won’t matter. The EPA will just change their rationale and still arrive at their same conclusion. That’s how they operate. EPA was Nixon’s biggest blunder. It needs to be shut down.

    The EPA will not be fooled by facts, they have an agenda.

  6. A special United States “vaccine court” dismissed three cases that were attempting to establish a link between mercury-containing immunizations and autism*. Since this ruling the EPA has had their feather ruffeled……
