So how does Gina McCarthy, administrator of the agency on the receiving end of universal Republican animosity, repond? Not so fast.
McCarthy said her regulations are “grounded in the law.”
“The one thing I know more than any other agency is EPA’s rules get scrutinized like no other,” the administrator said this week, as reported by The Washington Examiner. “They would have to go to that same level of scrutiny by any president should there be a reverse in direction.”
To follow through on their promises to undo virtually every regulation the EPA has issued in the last seven years would require a drawn out legal battle, she said. You would need a clear record to establish that or you will be working through the court system for a very long time,” McCarthy said. The EPA’s Clean Power Plan hangs in the balance at the Supreme Court.
The EPA has been overstepping its bounds for a long time and just as we should do with several alphabet agencies it should be reigned in and its top management brought to justice for their willingness to subject americans to unreasonable requirements and rules based not on science but politics.
