Remember: When Obama talks about creating jobs- It’s just talk.
The latest regulations by the Obama Environmental Protection Agency will cost millions of lost jobs and another Trillion in costs for businesses each year.
Not even Yellowstone National Park would be in compliance with the new standards.
The EPA’s role is to develop regulations based on science from laws passed by Congress to protect human health and the environment. However, with its proposals to toughen ozone standards and regulate greenhouse gases and its premature approval of E15, the EPA is now moving beyond its mandate into a political agenda that is not based on realistic science. While the U.S. needs to protect the environment, it’s time for EPA to stop overreaching its authority. It could ultimately cost millions of American jobs, increase energy costs, and put U.S. businesses at a competitive disadvantage in the global race for energy.
API released a statement yesterday on Obama’s latest job killing policy- the offshore drilling ban:
…The administration’s decision today not to allow offshore drilling in the eastern Gulf of Mexico, the Atlantic and the Pacific in the government’s next five-year drilling plan could result in the loss of tens of thousands of American jobs, billions less in government revenues and an increasing dependence on foreign energy sources.
Meanwhile… The Castro Regime will begin drilling off the coast of Florida next year and will go deeper than the Deepwater Horizon rig that exploded in the Gulf of Mexico in April.
