This is Hugh.
Slash the whole epa away. Shoulda never been in the first place.
Defund the EPA, gather up whatever leftovers there are, wrap them up and return them to Jimmy Carter, labeled as the reward for his ruinous meddling all those years ago. Let him hire them to work at habitat for humanity, where they can finally do some real work for a worthwhile, sensible program...
Then defund the National Endowment for the Arts, and let those employees qualified apply for positions at prestigious museums-voila-instant culture.
Then send the saved money to the national parks and firefighting efforts-perfect!
