Proposed EPA regulations infringe on life itself

Proposed EPA regulations infringe on life itself
Recently Lisa Jackson’s EPA released a draft document describing how the agency wants to regulate the amount of carbon and other so-called green house gasses that can be released into the atmosphere under its “Clean Air Act, which was never intended to regulate greenhouse gasses, despite the fact that all life on the planet is basically carbon-based.

As the U.S. Congress is still debating the merits of climate change legislation, not only is it wrong for the Administration to move forward with their proposed standards, but the EPA does not have the authority to pass laws.  The making of laws and the regulation of commerce are constitutionally granted to Congress and the states.

Many feel that the regulations announced by the EPA would be even more devastating than the Waxman/Markey “Cap and Trade” legislation (H.R. 2454) passed by the U.S. House this past June, as the regulations would apply to any industrial source, even power plants, that emit at least 25,000 tons of greenhouse gasses at year. Such an enactment would kill jobs, raise the price of energy and in the process increase the prices of all goods and services.

Under the hallmark of progressivism, which spawns fascism and which assumes that experts know what is better for society than the individuals themselves, Barack Obama has co-opted the Congress and is imposing his agenda through the regulatory back door of the EPA.

The Republican-dominated House, if serious about government profligacy, abuses of power, and reviving the economy through the creation of jobs, must be ready to battle the EPA when the House is called into session on January 2nd, 2011.

The GOP House must throw monkey wrenches into the Obama administration’s attempt to release the EPA’s carbon police on the American people and on this nation’s economic engine.
