During the 2008 presidential campaign, Barack Obama admitted, without the slightest hint of shame, that he would use powers vested in the federal government to bankrupt private enterprise deemed politically incorrect by he and fellow Marxists.
After golfing with former President Bill Clinton for just a few hours, Obama experienced an epiphany which may allow him to fulfill his passion for destroying business, and do so in the righteous name of creating new jobs!
As reported at the reference, in part:
The Environmental Protection Agency has said new greenhouse gas regulations, as proposed, may be “absurd” in application and “impossible to administer” by its self-imposed 2016 deadline. But the agency is still asking for taxpayers to shoulder the burden of up to 230,000 new bureaucrats — at a cost of $21 billion — to attempt to implement the rules.
The EPA aims to regulate greenhouse gas emissions through the Clean Air Act, even though the law doesn’t give the EPA explicit power to do so. The agency’s authority to move forward is being challenged in court by petitioners who argue that such a decision should be left for Congress to make.
The proposed regulations would set greenhouse gas emission thresholds above which businesses must file for an EPA permit and complete extra paperwork in order to continue operating. If the EPA wins its court battle and fully rolls out the greenhouse gas regulations, the number of businesses forced into this regulatory regime would grow tremendously — from approximately 14,000 now to as many as 6.1 million”
Pity that Obama did not use his power to actually improve America.
For instance, hiring 230,000 new border patrol and ICE agents to secure the border AND deport illegals already here. would be a step in the direction, which is why Obama will never do it!
