EPA Boss Grilled at Hearing Over New Obama Adminstration Policies That Are Expected to Kill Off Another Million Jobs (Video)
Remember: When Barack Obama, the worst jobs president since the Great Depression, talks about creating jobs… He’s lying.
Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa Jackson testified before the House Energy and Commerce Committee about her agency’s ability to regulate greenhouse gas emissions under the Clean Air Act. Congressman John Shimkus (R, Illinois) tore into Jackson, at one point demanding, “Do you believe in the law of supply and demand?!”
Big Government reported in October: A recent report from the Senate Environment and Public Works committee detailed how the EPAs new backdoor regulations will cause a shocking job loss – nearly a million jobs. In their quest “green” the nation, the EPA is steamrolling over American industries – cement, steel and coal, among others – with unrealistic standards and impossibly complex regulations, threatening thousands upon thousands of jobs, not just in the industries themselves, but in the surrounding communities that depend heavily on the industries’ welfare.
