In recent testimony before the House Select Committee on State Sovereignty, Texas Public Policy Foundation (Center for Tenth Amendment Studies) testified its support for HB 2545: Regional Air Quality Compact. EPA’s overreach to regulate greenhouse gases is seen as the most dangerous grab for power in the history of the executive branch and violates the constitutional authority of Congress and the States. Threatens devastation of the economy which will be felt by all families throughout the nation! Congress never intended for the EPA to regulate the economy and have so much power over the country!
Some estimates of the economic devastation will be seen in the next two years to the tune of 1.4 million more jobs lost with a decrease in U.S. investment by 15 percent. The cost of gasoline will rise 50 percent, electricity by 50 percent and natural gas as high as 75 percent over the next 20 years. Since gasoline is needed for transportation, food prices will also continue its rise hitting low income earners especially hard.
The day for the EPA is coming and was almost stopped outright by just four votes in the U.S. Senate. Stopping the EPA’s greenhouse gas regulatory assault on the economy is coming. There were 64 Senators including 17 Democrats that voted for measures to stop the EPA from its job killing slaughter. When the EPA regulates it does not take into account jobs in any respect.
The EPA originally first started by enforcing a couple of rules regulating stationary pollutants such as found in restaurants and power plants. According to the EPA’s own original statements under the “absurd results” doctrine it would be have been disastrous to force restaurants and apartment buildings to close down. All that a federal regulatory agency need do is rewrite its doctrine of enforcement with no over sight from Congress (the people’s representatives). This is the reason the tide has turned against the EPA in Congress; the people have had enough!
Near the end of last year the EPA gave the States just a few weeks to implement greenhouse gas regulations by January 2, 2011, rather than several years to meet EPA guidelines. Proof that employment is not their priority with their focus set on a few “eco minorities” throughout the country. HB 2545 was formulated to stop the EPA’s encroachment and unconstitutional power grab from the executive branch and most “eco” Democrats in Congress. The American people have had a “belly full” of a minority of the population deciding for the “whole pie”.
They (Tea Party led and America backed) have finally had it with politicians that lie in order to become elected to office, and then implement their true agenda. I don’t believe for a second that a total of 535 people (executive branch along with legislative) along with a few thousand government workers will “rule them all” as they see fit; when the majority is set against them. Their (socialists/communist) real true agenda is a tyrannical dictatorial rule over us all with a re-distribution of the wealth and a “one world rule” with the U.N. at the center of it.
The American people spoke loud and clear during the 2010 congressional election cycle taking the maniacal reins from the spend crazy House Socialists. Only with the military on their side can they succeed and I’m sure the demise of the industrial military complex is on their radar for teardown and a rebuild. Obama himself said there needs to be another military besides the current one and to make it “just as well funded; just as well equipped” as the one we have. He made this startling statement during his 2008 presidential run. Look up the video evidence on youtube; it’s there! Stay awake America there is certainly no time to ever fall asleep at “the switch” again!
