This is a declaration of war, a war on the environment, John OGrady, an EPA union leader and agency employee, told E&E news. Its a declaration of war against children with asthma, against women of child-bearing age, against the elderly.
Trump is expected to ask Congress to cut EPAs budget 24 percent and reduce the agencys staff by 3,000 employees.
OGrady works out of EPAs Chicago office where about 30 agency employees took to the streets to protest the nomination of Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt to head the agency. The Senate confirmed Pruitt in February.

Lefties sure love their rhetorical excesses.
What a crock. The EPA did not even exist until the mid 1970s. Let these assholes clean up China and India’s mess first... then get back to us.
These are union bosses. They don’t work for the government. They leach off government employee pay checks.
Never declare ‘war’ on the person who controls your paycheck..................
The EPA can be de-unionized with an EO as can the whole FedGov. It would undo JFK’s EO allowing federal unions.
The EPA union bosses could swiftly be made irrelevant!
At least they got this one right. Trump has declared war on EPA and he has the nuclear arsenal while they are defenseless.
Dear Mr. President,
Please keep cutting. To the bone. And then the marrow.
Your loal supporters
Clearly highlight EVERY abuse of power by the EPA over the last 8+ years and let the people decide. Make them answer to every single one.
Also the same mindset of the idiots at Standing Rock who did their best to destroy a pristine landscape with tons of garbage and human waste.
No, it’s a declaration of the END of war with businesses and property owners.
I want to have compassion for the employees, I really do. I often try...
...nope, not feeling it.
AND, make the democrats defend every single instance.
The face of deep state govt.
Now try to feel sorry for Governor Terry Sanford of NC who sold the land (his land) to create an “industrial research park” that centered on the National HQ for the freaking EPA.
No kidding, poor widdle Research Triangle Park will become even more of a ghost town than it already is with the chinee taking over IBM laptops as Lenovo, and even mainframe.
This winning thing is fun.
Maybe instead of shifting to Climate Change as a priority and a money sink, things like Flint, MI and EPA’s own toxic spills can be given some attention with the remaining budget?
What about minorities. You left out minorities.
The Government Employees union was created by Presidential Executive Order by JFK. Don’t piss Trump off too much he can reverse that order and dissolve the Fed Employees union.
We’re not a nation, no we’re a jobs program for this guy and his buddies.
100% elimination of EPA and State would save $50 billion a year.
That would be a good start.
