The EPA is Shrinking




" A federal program to safeguard poor and racially diverse communities from pollution and other environmental harm is at risk of being dissolved, activists say. "

Of course it is. My only question is what took them so long. I'm surprised they didn't gut it in the first few months.

    Another reason why the Dems have to do great in Nov 7.

    For me, EPA still remains one of the most important federal programs in this nation.

    Like everything else that isn't "good for the war." But the real goal of any Republican administration is to can the rules on business, starve all the social entitlement programs to death, and give the "savings" to the 1%.

    In Australia we have a government with a similar mindset. They just brought in Industrial Relations law changes which completely advantage employers and take away many worker's rights.

    Right-wing Governments are bad news for all but the rich and powerful! Cheers.
