EPA, States Strike Back 2

EPA just don't get it.

Hey folks,

Remember this? OPNTalk - EPA, One of Many Things, Needs To Be Reeled In I said this.

We all know that Obama and this Administration is all about "Green." Which of course means nothing more than they are all about Power, Control, and of course, Money. Obama SAID he would bankrupt the Coal Industry and your Energy Costs would "Necessarily Skyrocket" under his Cap and Tax Plan. You all know all this.

However, HE knows that even with the total control of the House and Senate, he did not have enough Votes to get it through. Too many Sane Democrats that would not, and not enough RINOS to, Vote for it.

So what to do, what to do? Give the EPA, nearly unlimited power to do it for ya. This way when it hits the fan, you can say, "Hey, wasn't me, it was the EPA." If there is to be a GREAT back lash to it, then Obama and Crew could come in for the rescue, and attack the very TOOL that they are using to get Cap and Tax. Get the point?

So the EPA, through it's "Clean Air Act," is set to completely destroy Private Industries. The EPA proposed 42 significant regulations, with an annual Economic impact of $100 Million or more, during the Administration's first 18 months. One of the most damaging and outrageous, is the "New Ozone Standard." When this is implemented, the experts say it will cost ANOTHER 7.3 Million U.S. Jobs, and raise the cost of EVERYTHING in your daily life.
Now they use the same old scare tactics and in the face of REALITY, continuously LIE to the American People. I went on to say this.

They know this is all Bunk. All Political. Why else do you think that they came out on Tuesday, yes Election Day, when the Republicans TRAMPLED the Democrats all across the country, to say that it would postpone the release of the new Ozone Standard until the end of the year. My guess is that it will be shelved. They know that their new found Authority can be limited by the New House. They will not want to push it. My guess would be that they will attempt to lay low for the next two years in the hopes that the Democrats take over again in 2012.

We really can not afford to wait. We need to reign in their power and Authority NOW. Battles are already being fought in the Courts over the new GHG Emissions Regulations that go into effect on Jan. 2, 2011. This will effect the usual enemies of the Left, Industrial Facilities, and Power Plants. But it will effect much more than that. In total, over 6.1 million, including Hospitals, Big Box Stores and even Farms, among other Establishments. It will FORCE them to get NEW Permits to Operate or Expand. Whatever the EPA decides. Talk about a "Cash Cow."

This is CLEARLY a way for this Administration to get Cap and Tax, without having to go through Congress. Just like all those Obama 'Czars' that he appointed. They did not go through Congress. We have no idea what they are paid. They answer to NO ONE but Obama. That is what he is trying to do with Cap and Tax.

Make no mistake about this folks. Yes, WE WON. However, other than slowing down and minimizing the damage, I'm not so sure how much rebuilding and restoring we will be able to do. Obama still has the Veto Pen. However, we can not, NOT do anything. We need to MAKE HIM Veto Commonsense and Logic. MAKE him Veto Sanity. Over and Over again. Bring back Drill Here, Drill Now. MAKE him Veto it. Repeal Obamacare. MAKE him Veto it. Let's Show the World, who are getting it folks, who Obama really is. Lets guarantee that he is OUT in 2012, so that REAL healing can begin.
Well, the EPA just don't get it. Check out this Press Release from the EPA.

Bills to Block EPA Threaten Health of U.S. Kids, Adults
PR Newswire

Jan. 27

Asthma Rates in Co-Sponsors' States Highlight Risks of Efforts to Stop EPA's Clean Air Act Updates; Focus on 123 U.S. Reps in 35 States -- AK, AL, AR, AZ, CA, CO, FL, GA, IA, ID, IL, IN, KS, KY, LA, MI, MN, MO, MT, NC, NE, NJ, NY, OH, OK, PA, SC, TN, TX, UT, VA, WA, WI, WV, WY.

Millions of Americans with asthma, including children, would be at further risk under proposals backed by 123 lawmakers to block the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) from updating clean air standards, according to data compiled by the Natural Resources Defense Council and released with Health Care Without Harm.

Information on the risks to constituents posed by legislation to block EPA in 123 Congressional Districts in 35 states will be released at a phone-based news conference at 1:30 EST Thursday, January 27, 2011.

Today, polluters are allowed to dump unlimited amounts of life-threatening carbon pollution into the air. Carbon dioxide pollution increases the risk of heat stress, promotes the spread of infectious diseases and makes it more difficult to reduce smog pollution, which threatens the health of asthma sufferers and others with respiratory problems. The EPA has also adopted cleanup standards to reduce toxic, smog and soot pollution from cement plants, standards which are also being opposed. So far, 123 U.S. House members have cosponsored one or more pieces of legislation that would stop EPA's work in its tracks.

In addition to highlighting the number of existing asthma sufferers by Congressional District, NRDC will release data showing the tens of millions of dollars in campaign contributions from major polluters to the 123 Members of Congress co-sponsoring anti-EPA bills: Alaska, Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, North Carolina, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin, West Virginia and Wyoming.

{Laughing} So JUST Lawmakers in Alaska, Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, North Carolina, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin, West Virginia and Wyoming, are rejecting this new found power of the EPA. That's all. No big deal. What a bunch of uncaring, intrusive, and most likely RACIST these 123 Members of Congress must be. How DARE they. Don't they know they are just suppose to lay down and take whatever the EPA, or ANY Federal Agency tells them. Especially if Obama backs the Idea. How DARE they fight this. How DARE the States fight back. 34 of the 50 States are telling the EPA, and Obama, "Forget YOU!"

Basically what you are seeing is the result of Obama and the Liberals in the Democrat Leadership, over reaching BIG TIME. They went Light Speed to the Left. They tried to accomplish their "Wish Lists" that they have had for over 50 years. They tried to do it all. The American People said stop, wait, think about this. They said, "Forget you! We have agendas and we are sticking to them. We do not care what you think. You are too stupid to know what is best for you. Just lay down and take it." They forgot it IS the American People they WORK for. They forgot the Constitution is in place to PREVENT this type of thing from happening here. They forgot History. Or ignored it. They are finding out now, the American People HAVEN'T forgotten History. We KNOW the Constitution. We WANT Freedom. We WANT Government small and less intrusive. We came here to flee a Tyrannical Government, and we will not allow one to materialize here.

So between the States standing up for Freedoms, fighting Amnesty, Obamacare, and completely Unconstitutional Powers by someone like the EPA, Obama and Crew are finding it more and more difficult to further their Agendas. NOW all of a sudden, they want unity. Bipartisanship. They want to appear to be working back toward the middle. They no longer have much of a choice in the matter.

Even with COMPLETE Control, the LWL {Left Wing Looneys} found out that even in their own Party, THEY, were and are, a VERY Small Minority. That is why they got nothing done. They did not even have the Votes in their own Party. Regardless of the MMD, and people like Bill Maher, they fooled NO ONE. Their KOOK Base is not that vast. It is NOT the Norm for Americans to want "Progressive" progress. They do not want Liberalism. They want America the way she was always meant to be. Not fundamentally changed to resemble a more Tyrannical, or Socialistic Country. But one that is FREE and one that celebrates Freedom and hard work. One that takes care of those less fortunate by charity and heart, rather than mandates, and Laws.

The EPA, Obama, and the LWL may not get it, but the American People DO. In the end, it is the American People that matter most.
