Good for you! You are part of the 50% of college graduates who have a job and don't live in your parent's basement.
You must have either chosen a solid career path or live in the Greater D.C. area..
What about the Plans that the EPA has that will certainly cripple the nation if they are permitted to fully implement their regulations. EPA answers
to no one just like Sebelius in HHS... yet they have the power to solely enact their legislation... Quite out of balance from our system of checks
and balances eh?
To suggest that a few EPA policies will cripple the nation is the kind of doom porn that belongs in the 2012 forum.
It will NOT kill America. Life will go on. And if it were George W or Mitt Romney passing this legislation I would say the same thing. Sure, we can
all disagree with it, but it's foolish to think that we'll be living on the streets because of environmental protection legislation.
The "unfortunate" truth is that America is not on the brink of collapse and plenty of us are doing just fine. It's only the Americans who sit at
home watching MSM propaganda (that includes FoxNews) who believe that 90% of us can't afford to eat and live in tents. It's just not true.
You need to get out into the real world buddy. Did you read the whole report? and Are you familiar with the litany of crippling regulations that the
EPA has already put it into action since Obama took office. This is just the new stuff... Farmers are now cuffed with so much red tape that they
either have to hire a lawyer just to go through the paperwork or they just give up and shut down the farm. If its not just the red tape its the high
cost of compliance that shuts them down...
Have you seen the cost of your groceries skyrocket??? Paying more and getting less, package sizes decreasing while the price stays the same or
increases, The impact of ethanol subsidies on the corn market? 40% of all corn goes into your gas tank.... Not good!! It's a mandate and must
The EPA is hell bent on destruction
Testifying on behalf of AFBF before the House Small Business Subcommittee on Agriculture, Energy and Trade, Carl Shaffer, president of the
Pennsylvania Farm Bureau, said EPA proposals to exert greater regulatory control over agriculture will drive up the cost of producing food, fiber and
"EPA proposals are overwhelming to farmers and ranchers and are creating a cascade of costly requirements that are likely to drive individual farmers
to the tipping point," Shaffer said. "The overwhelming number of proposed regulations on the nation's food system is unprecedented and promises
profound effects on both the structure and competitiveness of all of agriculture."
Time to wake up... I grew up in a farm community and I have seen the changes for the worse...
Philip Nelson, president of Illinois Farm Bureau, also testified at today's hearing, on behalf of farmers and ranchers in his state. Nelson
raises corn, soybeans, alfalfa, cattle and hogs. He testified to the subcommittee regarding a new regulation, the Pesticide General Permit, that went
into effect Nov. 1.
"This new permit is a needless duplication of existing law. We do not need this entirely new permit program," Nelson said, noting that the Federal
Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act has covered pesticide labeling and application very effectively since 1947.
