There’s only one thing worse than fighting a war. And that’s fighting a war you cannot win.
Because the Obama Administration gave ridiculous amounts of power to the unelected officials of the Environmental Protection Agency, they can pretty much pass and enforce whatever rules they choose. Even if that means destroying businesses and the people who depend on them for their livelihood.
A perfect case in point is the coal industry, which has been decimated by Obama and the EPA. The agency’s ridiculously strict rules regarding acceptable levels of pollution have caused many power plant closures over the past few years, and now more are coming. Hundreds of jobs in some 37 states will be lost as more stifling regulations go into effect, damaging the economies of states that are already hurting.
And, some industry experts are saying that the nation’s power supply will also be negatively affected by these EPA regulations. That’s just what we need when we already have a vulnerable electrical grid and an endless parade of enemies that have vowed to target that grid, right?
Unfortunately, there’s nothing that can be done about it, unless a Republican-controlled Congress decides to try to strip the EPA of some of its power. Right now, according to Alan Minier, chairman of the Wyoming Public Service Commission, “It’s a game we can’t win.”
Do you believe the EPA should be allowed to do whatever it wants, or should some of its power be taken away and given to Congress? I’d love to hear from you about this.
