Obama Deciding Whether To Bargain Away EPA Pollution Controls

The man is fucking nuts. Sierra Club says the following:

Right now, the Obama Administration is considering a deal with Republicans to give up key EPA pollution safeguards in order to gain cooperation on passing a government funding bill.


Let's be clear: polluters refuse to be held accountable for the damage they do to our families and our communities. They've bought themselves a Republican Congress and are using it to obliterate the laws passed to protect our health from their pollution.

The EPA pollution safeguards they seek to destroy have avoided 160,000 cases of premature death, 130,000 heart attacks and 1.7 million asthma attacks in 2010 alone

And what's even more outrageous is that these EPA protections have nothing to do with the federal budget process. It's ridiculous that these riders to the budget would even be considered. This is Washington D.C. politics at its worst.

Call, write, do whatever you can. I am past the point of wishing I had never voted for Obama: by now, I wish I had never heard his name or seen his face. This behavior is just plain evil.
