Today, the House Small Business Committee held a hearing on “Lifting the Weight of Regulations: Growing Jobs by Reducing Regulatory Burdens,” a key tenet of the GOP’s Plan for America’s Job Creators. The House has already passed legislation to prevent a job-destroying national energy tax (H.R. 910), roll back duplicative and costly regulations on farmers and small business owners (H.R. 872), and stop a government take-over of the internet by the FCC (H.J.Res. 37).

Sorry, but this is just an attempt to put more money in Corporate pockets by not complying with regulations that help keep this country safe and the workers of the various companies healthy. It's just as bad as union busting. "Oh look what we are doing". Many of these regulations are in place to protect people living in the areas where these offenses have occurred and for the workers who have suffered as a result of working with things that are not safe for them to work around. They would have coal miners self insure if they could. I am not buying this at all. It just equals more profits for the owners and people who run these companies. Clean water is a big Republican no-no right now. Take a look at the statistics in major cities on their water safety stats. It's appauling. Everyone is shocked when high levels of chemicals show up in their drinking water. Like it or not, these regulations were but in place for reasons above all of our pay grades. Anyone who lived in areas with superfund sites can tell you how carefully we have to tread on this. I did and it was scarey. Let alone don't ever try to sell property within 5 miles of this.
