As far as these gas pumps go; they may not have known the dangers when they started, but they sure knew about them when they avoided paying for the cleanup.


You ever throw away a battery? Did your dad or grand dad ever dump used oil some place other than recycle container..All bad bad people...I guess lol

In many of these cases the money needed is beyond what anyone to pay..

The federal government, meanwhile, plans to clean up a plume of cancer-causing solvent discovered beneath a former Kiel Bros. station that threatens drinking water near the Pence family’s hometown.


Well that's a neat trick.

When did GAS stations start selling solvents?

Gasoline is a solvent.
And they used to put lead in it. Among other things.

I am well aware of what Gas is.

Also well aware since the church of climatology took over gas's shelf life has been drastically reduced.

Which makes that article an effing LIE.

What is there about a "failed business" that folks dont seem to understand ?
What is it about the State on the hook for cleanup of a "failed business" folks dont seem to understand ?
State taxes go to cleanup and hazmat crews.
That is why they have cleanup and hazmat crews
For cleanup .

Happens all the time..
No matter the last name.

They think the Pence family built ALL 210 stations.

The thought never occurred to them how effing expensive that would have been.

They most likely took over our bought out MANY of them.

Every gas station pays into a fund to take care of contamination under any situation. They do here, that cost is spread out amongst the gas customers buy. The cleanup is being funded by that organization, the fact that the legal costs bankrupted the company and were found later to not be right means that the state is on the hook for these charges.

I am thinking these charges may never have been right, someone was trying to get back at that business, probably someone who would gain by them being shut down.


But what companies pay regularly into a fund for 'clean-up' is a pittance of the actual costs of those clean-ups.

If their share were higher they would just pass it along to you at the pump. Maybe we should nationalize gas stations?

Maxine Waters husband got bailout to the tune of 12 million.

www.politifact.com...

thehill.com...



what you have failed to say is:


Internet posts claiming that U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., is facing corruption charges neglects to tell readers the incident is seven years old and that the charges were dropped.

"California Democrat Maxine Waters charged on 3 counts," read the headline on an Oct. 6, 2017, post on NewsOfTrump.com. The headline added a hallmark of fake news sites looking to engage an audience, asking readers, "Do you support this?"


Above from your own first source.

From the second:


Waters denied any wrongdoing, mounted an aggressive defense and has opted to make her case in a public trial to take place sometime this fall.


She wanted the details of the case to be public.

You should at least read the articles you are posting before assuming the headline accurately reflects the content. Hint - headlines can be very misleading.

We could always increase tariffs on imported oil.

Did they actually have the trial you quote from the article? Politicians like to boast of stuff like that and "never clear their name" and let it get lost on the news cycle

The end result will be the same.....we will pay at the pump. Ask California.

Indeed. It is US citizens who pay the price on tariffs.

But don't worry, you'll get used to it.

So what? You're only attacking Pence because you know if by some miracle you impeached and convicted Trump, you'd have Pence as POTUS #46.

All I can say is if you do somehow manage to destroy Trump's Presidency (you haven't come close yet), you will deserve Pence and every single last bit of his ultra-religious agenda

Where was your complaints when taxes (especially the goofy ""individual mandate"") were being constantly raised to fund fringe programs and wedge agendas?

That's rather vague. Can you be more specific?

Do you think increasing the federal budget deficit by reducing taxes, while increasing consumer prices is a good economic strategy?

This is the first thing I agree with you on
Now if we can all get on the same page it will be a start to fix all this crap .

I did not say I support the current actions, however. I am just pointing out how many people could care less about the budget when they are enacting their wish-list programs (which are popular by a plurality at best, sometimes not at all)

I don't want to see consumer prices raised at all. I would personally stop buying whatever products come at such a markup, and focus on US made products

I think most people have their preferences as to how their tax dollars are spent.
