Gingrich Calls For Elimination of The Environmental Protection Agency

In a further example of the rush to the bottom in our political system, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich told the Conservative Political Action Conference that he intends to scrap the EPA which he claims has waged a “war on American energy.”

Gingrich wants to create an Environmental Solutions Agency that rewards innovation. It is an incredible statement about the extreme of the conservative movement. While insisting that they are fighting for family values, they would eliminate the agency that protects the health of our families and particularly our children. The EPA is already struggling with limited funding and enforcement capacity. Yet, Gingrich wants to eliminate it — and views that pledge as a key to securing Republican votes.

  1. Another way to look at it American Energy has declared war on Americans right to breath clean air and drink clean water.

    I live in a state that has kept the EPA at bay for the last 20 years – Texas. Come on down and look at the result. Childhood asthma rates are through the roof,cancer rates are climbing, the list goes on and on.

    The EPA is starting to take action and there are many Texans who are happy about that.

  2. centerist cynic,

    Forgive them for they know not what they do. The amount of money put into propaganda to convince the public that all government is bad, as is government regulation, is staggering. The majority of people get the fact that there are benefits in a strong central government. However, a stolid minority of people who sheeplike absorb the crap, believe it. They fail to realize that the public needs government to protect them from the predation of ruthless corporatists.
