Barbara Boxer: I hope greens sue President Obama

By: Darren Goode September 7, 2011 09:01 AM EDT

Senate Environment and Public Works Chairwoman Barbara Boxer said she hopes green groups sue President Barack Obama over his decision to punt a regulation curbing smog-creating emissions until at least 2013.

Boxer — whose relatively mild reaction to Obama’s surprise announcement Friday was in contrast to heated rebukes by environmental groups — said she will stand by those groups in any litigation to force the administration to issue a final ozone rule that goes beyond what was enacted by President George W. Bush.

Environmental groups charged that Obama made a political calculus by punting on a rule that was a particular target of critics who charge his regulatory agenda has hurt the economy and jobs.

Boxer didn’t quite go there. “I’m not making any charge. I’m just saying I disagree, strongly, with their decision,” she told reporters Tuesday. She added, “And I hope they’ll be sued in court and I hope the court can stand by the Clean Air Act.”

Noting that every president regardless of political party has been sued by environmental groups, Boxer said, “And I’m on the side of the environmentalists. If you factor in the health benefits you save so many lives and you prevent so many hospital admissions that it’s a big plus for the economy.”

Boxer issued a statement Friday saying she was “disappointed” in the decision but also “heartened” by Obama’s pledge in his announcement to safeguard the EPA and more specifically the Clean Air Act.

Boxer needs to provide details of the number of people currently being admitted to hospitals because of our present lack of regulation that would be implemented if the lawsuit were successful.

Where is there any proof whatsoever of that? (crickets chirping from the empty-headed Box0fRocks)

Let’s also sue him for defaming American gun owners by “gunwalking” assault rifles to Mexico for the purpose of undermining the 2nd Amendment.

How do you sue over something that has not been done?

I hope business groups sue the feds over imposing regulations without the benefit of passing them in congress as laws.

This is typical of losers like Boxer, they don't have any respect for money. For one, she supports the "green" nonprofit groups that really should not exist in the first place. There should be no entity in this country that gets tax breaks, postage breaks, government support or outright government grants (gifts) if they do not FEED, CLOTHE or HOUSE human beings. If they don't do that they should not be a so-called "non profit". FYI, we have over 1.5 million of these groups in America now.

Further, she asks that the taxpayers be sued. Which is outrageous! She wants me and you to not only pay for the litigation in the event the government loses she wants all of us to pay for damages, court costs, attorneys fees and whatever else.

The disrespect for money from politicians is sickening. I am tired of it. Take any of the candidates for President, for example. Those of them that are already holding elected office are thieves as far as I am concerned. Whether it be Ron Paul or Rick Perry or any of the other candidates currently in an elected office. They have jobs which they are not doing. If my employee here in Texas, Rick Perry, wants to go run around somewhere else for over a year not doing his job I want him to RESIGN first! Or at least let's dock his pay and benefits and make him pay for any state employees like the Texas DPS who are with him. He is stealing from me. Harsh? Not in my view. These politicians needs to be put under foot by the people paying the bills!

When you are fat, sassy and rich you can forget about the details and spend money like it does not matter. But when you are broke and deeply in debt every penny counts! The whole mindset of how politicians act and spend money has to change and change dramatically!

I hope Obama, Boxer and the EPA are sued for denying people their livelihoods over the AGW scam.

This is the problem liberals find at the end of any road. There's nothing there. Pass one regulation, and it's never enough. The world didn't quite turn into utopia yet, so we must have missed something.

Obama turned away from a piece of green legislation? Why, that must have been the missing piece! THAT was why things aren't perfect.

Liberals don't realize that they are fundamentally unhappy people, forever chasing an ideal of purity that they'll never catch, and wouldn't make them happy if they did. The only thing that helps, for a time, is to pass more legislation, and feel like something was done. It never turns out that way, but it helps sooth their inner rage temporarily.

They can badmouth Obama on this, but truth be told, they wouldn't hardly have noticed, even if he had passed it. It's just another hit to a mostly numb junkie. They notice the lack of hit, and whine reflexively, but the hit itself barely does a thing for them anymore.

This was Obama's hope as well.

I put good odds on a federal court somewhere ordering the Employment Prevention Agency to implement the new, lower ozone standards and shut down a bunch of coal power plants across the country.

Floating blackouts will follow, hopefully just in time for election season next year.
