Complete title: Obama: EPA Regulations Create Jobs; 'EPA Touches on the Lives of Every Single American Every Single Day'
(CNSNews.com) - In a speech to employees of the Environmental Protection Agency on Tuesday, President Barack Obama said that EPA regulations are good for the economy and create jobs and that the agency "touches" the lives of every American every day.
We can make sure that we are doing right by our environment and, in fact, putting people back to work all across America, Obama told the federal workers.
When we put in place new common-sense rules to reduce air pollution, we create new jobs building and installing all sorts of pollution-control technology, Obama said.
When we put in place new emissions standards for our vehicles, we make sure that the cars of tomorrow are going to be built right here in the United States of America, that were going to win that race, the president continued.
When we clean up our nations waterways, we generate more tourists for our local communities. So whats good for the environment can also be good for our economy, Obama said.
The president spoke to the EPA employees at the Andrew W. Mellon Auditorim in Washington, D.C., to thank them for their workwhich he said touches the lives of all Americans every day.
The main reason Im here is simple: I just want to say thank you, Obama said. I want to say thank you to each and every one of you, because the EPA touches on the lives of every single American every single day.
What a crock! They touch some people like the couple in Idaho.
They need to start “touching” the lives of Americans, and drawing back a bloody stump.
We fixed those problems. We're done with the EPA. Thanks, now move on, EPA.
Well said...The EPA has now gone to the ridiculous extremes of regulation by the government, they need to be done away with.
He’s a Keynesian, or Kenyanesian...
Keynesian economics, or the “broken windows fallacy writ large”, is the gospel of economics for these guys.
He genuinely believes this is true.
Obama is crazier than an outhouse rat! The EPA has given us expensive, dangerous light bulbs; toilets that need to be flushed 3 or 4 times; appliances that don’t work worth a darn and are more expensive and less reliable than older models; detergents that don’t clean; asthma inhalers that cost more and don’t work; and regulations that cost jobs and close businesses.
The EPA touches me all right, it touches my butt when it steals money out of the wallet in my back pocket.
Lying is a way of life for Jug Ears
FU Lisa Jackson
signed: a bitter clinger
Here we see Obama’s campaign stragegy - make crap up and lie. About everything. Every day.
The Obozo is SO FULL OF IT the odor wreaks to every corner of this nation
Once had the MiDEQ tell me that, “Technology has advanced to where science can now accurately detect contaminatants in the ppb range. We are moving forward with regulations that will impose new limits in that range.”
Guess he’s never heard of diminishing returns.
“touches” the lives = “hold them down”
Government Parasite Jobs are not REAL jobs.
BS! The EPA steals private property rights and destroys capital needed for economic development.
‘EPA Touches on the Lives of Every Single American Every Single Day’
Kinda like the TSA does....
I want to say thank you to each and every one of you, because the EPA torches
touches on the lives of MANY every single Americans every single day.
That isn't a good thing.
BIG Gubamint is like a rash that won’t go away.
