EPA to Republicans: You´re making
it ´very difficult´ to do our job

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Tim Devaney

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/30/2014 8:58:42 PM

A top official at the Environmental Protection Agency said Wednesday he is troubled by a lack of trust from Republicans concerning the EPA’s new climate rule and plan to regulate smaller bodies of water. EPA Deputy Administrator Bob Perciasepe said he is trying to “build a bridge” with Republicans. “I can tell you my boss [EPA Administrator] Gina McCarthy would want nothing more than to build credibility with Congress,” Perciasepe said during a hearing at the House Small Business Committee. Perciasepe plans to leave the EPA next month, but before he takes off he has been making the rounds in Congress, offering to

What do the EPA imagine to be their job these days? Keeping an eye on the environment and acting to counter abuses is one thing; but counteracting climate change (on the unproven assumption that human activity caused and can reverse it) is beyond the scope of their charter.

And regulating nearly every aspect of human activity to make it as ´green´ as possible is definitely beyond it.

Wow, this guy was able to spin it where it sounded like Congress, The SCOTUS and Obambi all wanted the EPA to write rules. And then he doesn´t understand why Rebublicans in Congress don´t trust the EPA. Well, maybe if the EPA and its henchmen quit with the obvious fantasies and started dealing in reality, there might be a little more trust.

Shut them down. The EPA (and other bureaucracies) are just a way for the Congress-critters to transfer the decision making process and to absolve themselves from blame for any horrendous decisions made by these entities. If they had to vote and go on record for all those regulations, there would be voter backlash. This way they can say they didn´t do it.

ALL of these "agencies" should be dissolved and the regulations trashed. Let Congress do their own dirty work. It´s their job to make these tough decisions.

That´s OK EPA, we can fix that by relieving you of your jobs, ASAP.

We need an umbrella bill that says that NO executive agency can carry out actions that cause more than $1 million in consumer costs without Congressional approval. Expected costs could be spelled out and approved in the original legislation but would be limited to those amounts unless extended by Congress.

The Executive should NOT have the ability to have unanticipated and unbounded impacts on the Country.

No government agency should have the power to impact the Country in this way without the express power of specific law.

The EPA is acting unlawfully in their new CO2 and water regulations.
They are required BY LAW to conduct an economic analysis of the cost impact of any new regulation, compared to the benefit. They have not done so. Exactly what benefit would they put on reducing CO2 that could be defended on its merits? Beyond global warming hysteria and ecoreligion, there are no defensible benefits.

Alton Nolen, the suspect in the beheading of a woman in Oklahoma this week, grew up in a rough neighborhood in the small town of Idabel, and was filled with anger and resentment, according to a friend from the neighborhood. Nolen "always had a temper" and a tendency toward violence, says Kenneth Tucker, a former Army reservist, corrections officer, and cop, currently working the oil fields in Oklahoma, who was friends with the suspect growing up. Tucker was "not surprised" to learn of the violent attack. "I knew that he had a temper," says Tucker. "I knew that, like, most

Bill O’Reilly tonight found it grossly wrong for the First Lady to suggest that women are not treated fairly in the United States. O’Reilly cited statistics he argued show that women are doing very well, financially and educationally speaking, in the United States, and said the simple truth is “life is not fair.” And, he continued, “no government will be able to impose so-called fairness.” O’Reilly connected Obama’s comments to midterm politics and charged that Democrats are playing

We also know that other workers at Vaughan say the suspect had tried to convert them to that religion. Some MSM outlets are emphasizing that the suspect was recently fired (it’s workplace violence, doncha know?), but the number of firings that lead to revenge beheadings is minuscule. In fact, I

ON THE NFL | Here is one bit of unsolicited advice for the NFL: Hire Eric H. Holder Jr. and put him in charge of all off-field player discipline. Do it as soon as possible. And hope that it helps to restore the public’s trust and confidence in the sport’s ability to deal with players’ off-field misbehavior. Holder is expected to resign as attorney general of the United States, making him available to help with the NFL’s current rash of off-field incidents. He is to remain at the Department of Justice until his successor is found. But that can be worked around. One person

We’re being had. Again. For six years, President Obama has endeavored to will the country into accepting two pillars of his alternative national-security reality. First, he claims to have dealt decisively with the terrorist threat, rendering it a disparate series of ragtag jayvees. Second, he asserts that the threat is unrelated to Islam, which is innately peaceful, moderate, and opposed to the wanton “violent extremists” who purport to act in its name. Now, the president has been compelled to act against a jihad that has neither ended nor been “decimated.” The jihad, in fact, has inevitably intensified under his counterfactual

Even though Republicans may take back the Senate by running against amnesty, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush pushed amnesty legislation while stumping for North Carolina Republican Senate candidate Thom Tillis on Wednesday. Bush, according to the New York Times, reportedly said that comprehensive immigration reform "will restore and sustain economic growth for this country." And even though a recent Gallup poll found that illegal immigration is now the top concern among Republicans, Bush said that if immigration reform is "framed in that way, I don’t think there’s a big debate in the Republican Party about the need to do this."

Of all the malfeasances of William Jefferson Clinton the one that would have most justified a removal from office was not the Monica hijinks, even with the attendant lying under oath and absurd parsings of the word “is,” but the pardoning of Marc Rich — the billionaire international commodities trader and mammoth contributor to, er, Clinton. Luckily for Bill, this action occurred on the last day of his presidency, making anything like impeachment moot, even though it was an example of political corruption that would have made Boss Tweed envious.

With the mid-term elections weeks away, many conservatives are confronting a difficult choice. Assuming there are no solid conservatives on the ballot, do we vote for establishment candidates? Or not vote at all? The reasons why some conservatives are on the fence or planning not to vote are well known.

They’re no better than the Democrats.” “Other than a few strong conservatives, the rest of the GOP stands for nothing.” I share these frustrations. The conversation in my head goes something
