The EPA had 1/3 the staff when it was created in 1970 and it had a job that was 100 times larger than it does now. In 1970, virtually every river in the nation was polluted and there were tens of thousands of sites across the nation that were being actively destroyed by the disposal of heavy metals, volatile organic compounds etc.

The rivers are now clean and there are fewer and fewer superfund sites being discovered every year. Maybe we can scale back a bit?

Ahh That's what it means. I never click on his silly links given as substitute for argument.

Yeah. It didn't work for Hillary either.

Nope. He said he was going to Drain the Swamp and shrink government.

As for being shocked, I'm sure you were on Nov. 8th.

Good for Trump! The EPA has over 10 thousand employees? why? What could that many people be doing?

Look, I live in Phoenix, AZ. The salt river runs through my city. It is closely monitored for pollution by the State of Arizona, Maricopa county, the cities of Phoenix, Glendale, Peoria, Surprise, sun city and Mesa. Why does the federal govt need to also get involved?
