Reason #4,035 to Defund the EPA Immediately: It's Sending Your Tax Dollars to Fund GOP Attack Ads

'Had people listened to (James Hansen) twenty years ago, Manhattan wouldn’t be underwater now.' -- Steve Goddard

It should come as no surprise that the flat-earth, no-growth, environmental leftists who run the EPA have commandeered your tax dollars to attack Republicans.

As IBD reports, the EPA has enjoyed a long, partisan relationship with the American Lung Association (ALA). And both organizations are up to no good, given that American taxpayers' dollars are being used for crass political purposes.

The Environmental Protection Agency is giving funds to charitable organizations to attack GOP members of Congress. Did you know telling the truth about climate change causes childhood asthma?

This relationship between the EPA and the ALA goes back to at least the early 1990s.

As John Merline reported in IBD way back in 1997, from 1990 to 1995 the EPA gave the American Lung Association some $5 million. reports that the EPA has given the ALA an additional $20 million the past decade.

In return, the ALA is putting up billboards in opposition to reining in an EPA that is guilty of at least mission creep and at worst of accumulating power not authorized by our elected representatives in Congress.

In other words, American taxpayers are shelling out dough to help fund the enormous federal bureaucracy's message that it needs more taxpayer dough.

The EPA is responsible for tens of millions of deaths around the world. It should be defunded immediately.

I thought it was illegal to use taxpayer funds to lobby for or against legislation.

Someone should be fired over that. Don't hold your breath waiting for it to happen.
