View Full Version : Pruitt confirmed for EPA: Republican congress will pay for this betrayal

Scott Pruitt spent years and millions of taxpayer dollars suing the Environmental Protection Agency over its efforts to regulate various forms of pollution in Oklahoma. Nevertheless, the US Senate set aside commonsense and confirmed him today (2/17/17) as the EPA’s new administrator.

This is truly an outrage.

See the Washington Post story here. (https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/energy-environment/wp/2017/02/17/scott-pruitt-long-time-adversary-of-epa-confirmed-to-lead-the-agency/?hpid=hp_hp-top-table-main_ee-epanominee-125pm%3Ahomepage%2Fstory&utm_term=.0a0ed3d63285)

Only two Democrats (from Red States, by the way) voted for him, and only one Republican (blue-ish state) flipped.
I keep wondering where all this "they're all the same" (asides from the three flips) nonsense is coming from.

Pruitt, Perry, Devos among others were picked to help wipe out all forward reform momentum of the last few years.

Yes, Pruitt has wasted millions of tax payers dollars spend on state court cases one of which was trying to have a monument of the Ten Commandments on the state capitol grounds and other likewise, religious issues.

Pruitt is a non-believer in climate change and a STRONG pro oil, gas and coal industry guy. Perfect for the environment! Not! Oh well, the fox is in the hen house so don't be surprised as to what comes next.

His entire cabinet is essentially a give-away to the Republican Party, the Christian Theocrats, Big Business, the gun lobby, etc.
