Scott Pruitt moves to repeal Barack Obama’s EPA regulations

October 9, 2017

  union-coal-miners-for-obama-870amBack when he was running for President Barack Obama promised to put the coal industry out of business. But still the coal miners unions and their members supported him only to turn against him after the draconian regulations were put in place. I guess they just assumed he would not make good on this campaign promise, but he did.

  Today Scott Pruitt announced the EPA will begin to repeal the Clean Power Plan’s environmental regulations on the coal industry. He will sign the rule beginning the repeal of these regulations tomorrow.

  Here is more:

EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt announced Monday that the Trump administration is moving to scrap the Clean Power Plan, the Obama administration’s signature regulatory program to curb emissions from coal-fired power plants.

Pruitt made the announcement at an event in Hazard, Ky., casting the previous policy as unfair.

“That rule really was about picking winners and losers,” Pruitt said. “The past administration was unapologetic, they were using every bit of power, authority to use the EPA to pick winners and losers on how we pick electricity in this country. That is wrong.”

He said that on Tuesday, he will sign a proposed rule to formally withdraw from the plan.

“It is right for this administration to say the war is over,” Pruitt said.

  The reaction from the left will be predictable: Donald Trump and the Republicans are anti-environmentalists who want the people to drink dirty water and breath contaminated air but I have only one question, why did it even take this long for Scott Pruitt to finally make this official?

    Maybe Pruitt had to get the OK from Jared and Ivanka who may have caved for future considerations from the Donald. I’m trying to stay positive but the wishy washy vacillation has gotten to me. Sorry Mr. president.

      I am sure they had something to do with the delay. They probably are getting something in return for their approval, good points.

    When the EPA started – EO signed by Nixon, December 2, 1970 – it probably was ‘well indented’ in response to ‘public concern’ that the Govt. create a team to enforcing the nation’s Clean Air and Clean Water Acts plus “numerous other environmental statute” and I bet ‘that’s where all the PORK was added’. Control and Profit.
    I’m going back to the Premise of Truth that is man didn’t have a ‘fallen nature’ (sin – ungodly) these Pork Agencies wouldn’t be where there are today. Trump is seen as ‘evil’ because he’s cutting back on their $$$$ funding. But when we realize that it’s packed full of ‘Deep State’ regulators bent on the opposite of ‘clean’ we’d agree to dissolving it entirely. Proof Chemtrail (not clean air ~ filled with harmful to our health contaminates) and are even the ones behind unplugging the Silver King Mine above Silverton, CO, polluting agricultural fields down river – promoting for more funding. The players aren’t those who are easily visible, rather have been involved, probably from the beginning, and even ‘inspired’ the public concern to begin with!

      I think Nixon was well-intentioned but it has been corrupted like much else in this world. The road to Hell is paved…
