Another day, another problem for President Obama’s EPA which has now firmly established itself as one of the most corrupt government agencies in recent history.
This latest problem stems from the department’s new burdensome ozone regulation.
The National Association of Manufacturers and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce filed a lawsuit on Wednesday against the EPA over its revised ozone rule, calling it “unworkable and overly burdensome.”
In October, the EPA changed the standard for ground-level ozone from 75 parts per billion, which was set in 2008, to 70 parts per billion.
“The EPA’s ozone regulation, which could be one of the most expensive in history, is unworkable and overly burdensome for manufacturers and America’s job creators,” said Linda Kelly, NAM’s senior vice president and general counsel, in a statement. “Manufacturers across the United States need regulations that provide balance and allow us to be globally competitive.”
The Chamber of Commerce agreed.
Don’t expect anything to be done to curb the EPA’s power especially considering the fact that the woman running the agency doesn’t have any qualms about lying under oath.
However, stories like this are important because they illuminate the very significant reality that big government has gotten out of control and when government grows this large, people are hurt.
When bureaucracy becomes so large that it is no longer accountable to the people and impossible to manage, mistakes happen and the taxpayers are always on the hook.
In some cases, as we saw at President Obama’s Department of Veterans Affairs, it can cost people their lives.
