The EPA was created by Nixon not Obama. The EPA has saved many thousands of lives from an early death or severe health problems due to pollution.

Trump to Slash the EPA's Workforce and Budget: Official | Time.com

Notice this line: "cuts would likely fall on the remaining half the agency's budget, which pays for agency operations and environmental enforcement"

In other words, gut the part of the EPA which protects our health from polluting industry.

If they're as competent as libs think EPA officials are, the vast majority of them will find work in the private sector.

Look at all the Nixon lovers.


The EPA was not the reason why the US stopped polluting everything , and certainly not the only thing.

Fair enough, not on this thread. There have been several threads about the federal workforce
being cut where posters said that all federal employees were overpaid know-nothings who
deserve to lose their jobs.

If Trump follows thru on proposals to slash so many regulations, why would there be work for them in the private sector?

More businesses will hire since there are fewer EPA regulations, mostly smaller businesses that cannot make a play because the big boys like ExxonMobil work together with the EPA to preserve market share.

Next question.
