The EPA's new regulations will effectively control industrial policy for every business in America. Utility companies that generate power will be especially hard hit; and the ripple effect is certain to touch off catastrophic price increases for all Americans. Oh, especially "the middle class".
Yesterday nearly 50 House Republicans co-sponsored a bill to stop the EPA in its tracks.
Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.), a member of the Energy and Commerce Committee, sponsored the bill. The measure’s 46 co-sponsors are all Republicans except for Rep. Dan Boren (D-Okla.)... Co-sponsors include Oversight and Government Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.)... The bill would amend the Clean Air Act to declare that greenhouse gases are not subject to the law, according to a brief description in the Congressional Record.
Every Democrat who votes against this bill should be a pariah in their home state.
Consider: Democrats want to control our bodies through their takeover of health care. They want to control industrial policy by limiting how much CO2 businesses can breathe into the atmosphere. They limit access to our own energy sources, risking our national security and restricting our ability to move about freely. They seek to nationalize more and more land. They control the banks and the housing market and the auto industry. Through Executive Orders they have seized control of coasts and waterways. For decades they have had a stranglehold on the educational system -- and within their monstrous health care bill, they tacked on a takeover of the student loan business. And they have stocked the judiciary with activists who disregard our nation's highest law to cement government's hold over the individual.
If James Madison were alive today, he would not even recognize this perverted form of American government. While one after another of their experiments run off the rails, they're busy creating new ones. When it comes to today's hard left Democrat Party, every day means another unconstitutional power grab.
Kneecapping the unelected fourth branch of government -- beginning with the radical Marxist whack-jobs at the EPA -- must be rapid and decisive. The ticking fiscal time bomb that Democrats and their cronies have left for our children must be defused quickly if we are to save this Republic.
Hat tip: Memeorandum.
