Action Alert: “You, Too, Can Help ‘Save’ Millions of Jobs “

Sharing it with you all.
You, Too, Can Help ‘Save’ Millions of Jobs

There is something you can do today to prevent future job losses, and it will not cost you, or the American taxpayer, trillions of dollars. As you are reading this, bureaucrats at the Environmental Protection Agency are deciding whether to implement an all-encompassing plan to regulate greenhouse gas emissions. The EPA believes a 1990 amendment to the Clean Air Act gave the agency the unchecked authority to centrally plan our entire economy. The Advanced Notice for Proposed Rulemaking the EPA released earlier this year envisions federal regulations that would bring heavy burdens to one-fifth of all food service businesses, a third of all health care businesses, half of the entire lodging industry, and even 10% of all buildings used for worship. The EPA even claims the power to set speed limits and regulate your lawnmower.

Thee EPA plan will cause a net job loss of more than 500,000 by 2011, and will destroy 2.9 million manufacturing jobs by 2029. Obama energy adviser Jason Grumet signaled that the Obama administration would use the EPA plan as a job-loss cudgel to force Congress to adopt Obama’s equally pernicious job-killing cap-and-trade plan.

You can help stop the EPA dead in its tracks right now. As part of the regulatory process, the EPA must take comments from the public before issuing its final ruling. The EPA is not forced to listen forever. The agency will stop taking comments this Friday. GO TO and let the EPA know what you think.

    It is in jobs where we rely our future. We should not run out of jobs. I’m one with the people who would shout “Stop EPA!”.
