If you want the EPA reined in, you need to take action now.
Riders to block EPA from regulating greenhouse gases and over-regulating other air emissions have yet to be discussed as part of the ongoing debt ceiling negotiations, reports Environment and Energy Daily:
The Senate’s top Republican negotiator on the debt ceiling said the issue of EPA regulations has not even come up.
“I’m not talking about what we’ve discussed, but I guess I could say we haven’t discussed that,” Sen. Jon Kyl (R-Ariz.) said earlier this week.
Still there is hope:
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) hinted to reporters that it might be part of the debt ceiling bill, while House Energy and Commerce Chairman Fred Upton (R-Mich.) vowed that the EPA regulations issue “is not going away.”
“No debt limit is going to pass by itself,” Upton said. “You’ll have to have some significant pieces with it.”
The only way out of our budget crisis is through economic growth. By choking off energy supplies and making energy more expensive needlessly, the EPA is blocking that growth. At no time in human history has significant economic growth ever occurred without cheap and free-flowing energy.
If you live in a district or state with a Republican or “moderate” Democrat in Congress, you need to e-mail/call/write/visit them and demand that reining in the EPA be part of any deal.
Do it now. Save our economy. Save our country. Save yourself. Death to EPA over-regulation!
