Republicans for Environmental Protection Blast GOP for Assault on Clean Air Act...

"It is quite troubling that House Republicans are so hell-bent on rolling back environmental protections that have enjoyed overwhelming Republican support in the past," Jim DiPeso, REP vice president for policy and communications said. "It is telling that we have seen EPA administrators who served under Presidents Nixon, Ford, Reagan, and Bush come out strongly opposed to the GOP attack on EPA and the Clean Air Act." "House Republicans, and the Tea Party radicals leading them around by the nose, may want to return to the libertarian glory days when smog clouded our cities and rivers caught on fire, but most Americans--Republican, Democrat or independent--don't. They want clean air and water, they support environmental protection laws, and they want Congress to quit playing politics with public health and let EPA do its job," Jenkins said.
