The EPA destroys jobs!

In just the past few months, President Obama and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have decided that jobs are no longer the number one priority in America (although, for the EPA – jobs were never a concern). That’s why many people have begun calling it the Employment Prevention Agency. President Obama now believes that getting votes from extreme environmentalists (those who believe we should all be living in the woods) is more important than the 20 million Americans looking for full-time employment.

The President and the agency have made several decisions that will cost hundreds of thousands, maybe even millions of jobs and billions of dollars in economic activity – and make electricity prices rise.

First, President Obama delayed a decision on the Keystone XL pipeline, which would have created thousands of jobs and lowered gas prices – but would have cost the tree-hugger vote. Because of this, President Obama delayed one of the most economically beneficial projects in recent memory. These enviro-wackos didn’t like the pipeline because they claimed a single aquifer in Nebraska was at risk. What you may not know is that there are numerous other pipelines running through that same aquifer and drinking water has not been affected. The delay was purely political and had nothing to do with the environment.

Second, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar decided that no new uranium mining claims would be approved in the area surrounding the Grand Canyon. Current claims would still be honored, but new claims would be stopped.

Uranium is vital to our national defense. If we don’t continue to mine our own, who will we buy it from? Countries that hate us? Even though this mining creates jobs and increases economic activity in the area, and has been taking place for decades without any adverse effects to the landmark – President Obama decided liberal environmentalist votes were more important.

The EPA has been given free rein to regulate and destroy jobs in this country. Luckily, some conservative Members of Congress are trying to control its job-killing agenda. The Defending America’s Affordable Energy and Jobs Act (H.R.750 in the House and S.228 in the Senate) would curtail the EPA’s destructive policies.

Behind nearly every decision the EPA makes is the foolish assumption that global warming (or climate change or whatever it’s called now) is predominantly caused by human action. Even though the science is still undetermined on this correlation, the EPA wants to DESTROY JOBS AND THE ECONOMY in order to combat this scientifically faulty claim.

This is why we need to pass H.R.750 and S.228, the Defending America’s Affordable Energy and Jobs Act. These bills would stop all of the EPA’s job-killing green house gas regulations, and free our country from under the control of this agency.

This past week, President Obama spoke at the EPA, telling the workers there that “our country is stronger because of you.” Let’s see, 8.5% unemployment (and true unemployment at 15%) – that doesn’t seem like a strong country.

President Obama thinks that our country is better with the EPA? What about the fact that before the EPA existed, states were already steadily improving the quality of the air and water.

And what about the thousands of people who are out of work because of the EPA’s damaging regulations? Their recent coal ash regulations (which are supposed to stop global warming) have already meant a death sentence for several power plants across the country, which not only hurts the economy but will raise electricity prices dramatically, as The New American points out:

“Due to new federal air pollution regulations, more than 32 power plants across the country will be forced to close their doors, according to a recent Associated Press survey. Those plants, which are mostly coal-fired, discharge enough electricity to supply more than 22 million households, the survey notes, and their closure will lead to job layoffs, depleted tax revenues, and a considerable hike in electric bills. The areas that will be hit hardest are the Midwest and in the coal belt (Virginia, West Virginia, and Kentucky), where dozens of plants will likely be retired.”

Does that sound like a stronger country?

Don’t forget that when these plants close, tax revenue will drop dramatically. That’s because these power plants not only supply – in some areas – the most jobs, but also pay the most in local taxes. And since Democrats are all about raising taxes, guess who they’ll come after to make up for the shortfall? Hint: it’s you.

Behind nearly every decision the EPA makes is the foolish assumption that global warming (or climate change or whatever it’s called now) is predominantly caused by human action. Even though the science is still undetermined on this correlation, the EPA wants to DESTROY JOBS AND THE ECONOMY in order to combat this scientifically faulty claim.

These aren’t even half of what the EPA has been up to during the Obama Administration. Remember the offshore drilling moratorium which punished every single driller in the Gulf of Mexico because of the mistake of one? It cost tens of thousands of jobs and millions in economic activity for the area – absolutely decimating the economy of those states.

And what about the new vehicle fuel standards that are supposed to also cut down on greenhouse gas emissions that supposedly cause global warming? These new rules will make cars cost about $5,000 more than they do now, and because they’ll need to be smaller and made of lighter material to meet the new standards – they’ll be much less safe.

One of the more absurd rules coming out of the EPA is a regulation which controls dust. Yes, dust, like what you find when you drive down a dirt road or don’t clean the top of your bookshelf for awhile. The EPA believes it makes the air dirtier and increases global warming – so they want to regulate it. What does it mean? Well it means less economic activity as people try to comply with the new rules. Even worse, it could lessen our food supply because farmers will be the hardest hit.

But remember, as President Obama said, the EPA is making the country stronger.

How much longer will our economy have to suffer because of the EPA’s job-killing regulations?

How much longer do we have to live under the thumb of the EPA, who can now destroy your dreams by regulating your property?

How much longer will we have to bleed jobs and prevent more jobs from being created because the EPA doesn’t think they’re good enough?

Until Americans and Congress stand up and say “no more.”

We need jobs in this country, not more rules. The EPA doesn’t care about jobs – they’ve admitted that fact. Now it’s time for Americans to say that they care more about jobs and the economy than giving President Obama the environmentalist vote. Please Fax every Member of Congress now and tell them to co-sponsor and support H.R.750 and S.228!
