EPA: Jobs Don't Matter
IBD Editorials ^ | April 18, 2011 | Staff

Posted on 04/18/2011 5:34:41 PM PDT by Kaslin

Jobs: The EPA admits to Congress that it does not take into account the impact of its regulations on employment, the economy or international competitiveness. Neither, apparently, does the White House.

This stunning revelation was made by EPA Administrator Mathy Stanislaus in response to a question by Colorado GOP Rep. Cory Gardner. It came during Stanislaus' testimony before the House Environment and Energy Committee on Thursday and exposes the Obama administration's public posture on jobs and the environment as a fraud.

Gardner was asking about an EPA regulation that would govern industries that recycle coal and ash and other fossil fuel byproducts. Recycling is a good thing. Recycled coal ash makes concrete stronger, wallboard more durable and the shingles on your roof longer-lasting.

"We have not directly taken a look at jobs in this proposal," Stanislaus said. That's odd, since his testimony seems to contradict Executive Order 13563, issued by President Obama in January, which requires that all new rules issued by federal agencies take job creation into account. As we have learned, you have to watch what the administration does, not what it says.

As reported in the Daily Caller, the EPA issued a statement on April 30, 2010, in the appendix of its regulatory impact analysis of its coal ash regulation that said the assessment "does not include either qualitative or quantitative estimation of the potential effects of the proposed rule on economic productivity, economic productivity, economic growth employment, job creation or international economic competitiveness."

The Employment Prevention Agency has more interest in a wood flea than whether you (or thousands others) have a job.

Nothing new here - this has been common knowledge since Nixon started the EPA in the early 70s...

This is why we must change federal enviro laws to make the EPA consider jobs into the picture before any regulations are issued.

The video of this testimony before Congress is both jaw-dropping and infuriating. This EPA jerk just exudes cluelessness over some very straightforward questions.

Here is a link to that thread, which includes a transcript:

If you go to the source from there, you find the vid.
