#1 Time to rid ourselves of this useless group. Coal miners are going to vote this useless group out.

#2 In other words they are going to cram it though during the lame-duck session.

We need to have a ban on any new regulations or laws during the lame duck session.

#3 Maybe if they release enough heating oil on the market for free they'll be able to convince everyone in the northeast that all these regulatioons are a good idea.

#4 So retaining control of the House (and the purse), why will the Trunks even fund the organization next year? If you can get away without enforcing immigration laws, why aren't these regulations anymore important?

#5 Environmentalists at the EPA pulled this trick before in 2000 when the Clinton administration rushed out a finding that Mercury emissions from power plants were a growing public health threat pursuant to the Clean Air Act.

Funny that such a thing would come out of the Clinton administration when you consider that China now emits more coal pollution than the US and it was Clinton who granted China most favored nation trading status in spite of their human rights violations. But the thing about pollution is that it doesn't stay in the country of origin. The way the jet stream blows we get a lot of that stuff here. Not only that but the mercury falls into the ocean and poisons the fish. But I guess it's OK to pollute if you do it in the name of socialism so maybe I should just eat tofu and shut up.

#6 Because we are more honest and have too much integrity to do what the Donks do?

I favor a firestorm of protest when the review period opens up.

There is a comment period for new regs, right?

#7 Heard Romney say, they would be going through regulations, looking for those that deter business growth and removing them. Kinda like his teams would do when they were taking over a company....

#8 quit being so presumptive about this...you all know that they have to pass the law first before you can see what's in it!

#9 you also need to remove the EPA/DOJ/IS/etc. people with the Obama agenda. Strip them from their political jobs. The ones in civil service? Move them to penguin counting in the Antarctic. Burn it down

#10 Burn it down and use the site as a toxic waste dump.
