EPA granted power to bankrupt America

Unquestionably, the Environmental Protection Agency is an entrenched, self propriating and unrestrained government authority partly culpable for the gulf oil spill. The Senate has granted the EPA the authority to impose greenhouse gas restrictions that will destroy the already wounded American economy before it can recover.

This editorial in The Washington Examiner  explains how the EPA bosses extend their authority and censor staffers who question the agency’s global warming solutions.

Considering the questionable science shaping EPA policy, the motivation for regulations that impose unsustainable costs on every industry from major manufacturers to home-based entrepreneurs, the EPA requires Congressional attention and oversight.

UPDATE: Connie Hair  lists the Senate Republicans who were joined by six Dems who voted to block the EPA’s enforcement of the endangerment finding, and the 53 Democrats who blocked that move.
