It’s a STRONG issue to run on.

"It's a STRONG issue to run on."

Not necessarily. As the article points out, it benefited only 136 very, very large emitters who also contribute very, very large campaign funds to the Perry and the GOP.

OTOH, there is an uncountable number of businesses that have to live with the regs that apply to each of them with out this or any other benefit.

Some of them resent it and some of them worry that Perry's actions are going to bring the EPA down on them.

Bottom line, these companies in Texas and the rest of the US were able to delay it for 20 years.

Did you know that the infamously evil Koch Brothers' refinery was one of the first to go around Perry and deal directly with EPA to get their permits in order.
