EPA Cranks Out Third Job-Killing Regulation in a Week

 

Merry Christmas, Tiny Tim: the EPA has issued yet another devastating regulation. The Boiler MACT rule will hit American companies with a double whammy: it will kill jobs and spike the prices of almost every good and service. Oh, and there’s an added bonus: it will make U.S. companies even lesscompetitive internationally.

The National Association of Manufacturers is calling out the Obama administration.

The National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) President and CEO Jay Timmons issued this statement on the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) final Boiler MACT regulation:

“For the second straight week, the EPA has finalized another costly and crippling regulation at a time when our economy is on the brink.Boiler MACT will not create jobs, and studies indicate it could cost manufacturers as much as $14 billion. Manufacturers are understandably growing more pessimistic about the direction of the economy. The end-of-year regulatory assault on businesses, combined with the uncertainty of the fiscal cliff, makes for one of the worst business environments in living memory.

…this regulation remains far from being realistic. Currently, it is 20 percent more expensive to manufacture in the United States compared to our major trading partners, and Boiler MACT will only drive that differential higher

    The motto of this band of thugs is “never let a crisis go to waste”, and the corollary has to be “and if one doesn’t exist, create it!”

    Indeed, it is continuing at the calculated pace.

    @Tim — I have to take exception to that. The 0bamabots, zealots, demmorhoids, and koolaidians sit with their thumbs up their asses.

    We humans voted against Oscumbag.

    The clock is ticking down faster until the time a disgruntled union ex-worker takes a potshot at Obammy’s skull.

    I hope he/she gets in some good target practice until then….and dude do us all a favor, do it when the Moose is standing next to him.

    That ass is much bigger than a side of a barn.

    Um, sorry…who elected the EPA? I’m waiting for businesses to just flat-out say, “Fuck you and your regulations.”

    It’s either that or they go Galt. We’re getting to the point where it’s one or the other.
