I’m not surprised rinos wanted to block this. Wasn’t the EPA started under Nixon?
Yes, the EPA was Nixon’s baby.
Nixon was not a Constitutional Conservative, he was a “progressive” leftist, and is indeed responsible for many of the ills we now have.
That being said even if his bill had passed and the house likewise passed it Obama would just veto it. If these senators from Constitutionally traitorous states would would be weakened for nothing.
