“what does he say about the EPA???”

http://www.mittromney.com/issues/regulation

I am liking what I read, but, we shall see.

I am not in favor of eliminating the EPA, because without it, this place would look like post-Soviet Russia by now, maybe worse. On the other hand, we wouldn’t have any Social Security problem because the average life expectancy would be 60!

It needs to be reigned in and scaled back (very significantly) to its original mission.

The EPA has done nothing but lower our standard of living. Private property rights are the key to preserving the environment. Look at the worst environmental disasters and they are always caused or abetted by government.

BS!

The vast majority of the U.S.A. will not willingly live in filth and trash. Never has.
Only the very young and ignorant would make that assertion. Too many of those also believe that history didn't exist until they were born, so no one remembers what it was like decades before the EPA or the EQA. Give me a choice of pre or post EPA, I'll take "pre" every time. The country would be better for it.

I saw the evolution of the "environmental" gestapo and the insatiable hunger for more power and control over others' lives. The tens of trillions$ wasted can never be recovered. Plus, the major infrastructure created generations before the EPA which benefits tens of millions of US residents would literally not be "allowed" today.

Most people don't have a clue what its original mission was.
