After all, the inappropriately named “Affordable Care Act” is set to kill jobs, increase healthcare costs, and even make coverage less affordable to certain demographics. The EPA has routinely stifled innovation and “progress” in the name of environmental protection, and the Obama Administration has routinely adopted the proliferation of regulations over the economic health of the nation.
That is because, in the end, the EPA rule (like healthcare reform, financial regulation, and tax collection efforts) isn’t really about achieving results. The Progressive elites who are pulling the strings are far less interested in achieving results, than coercing the nation to adopt their world view.
Like most of the bureaucratic mess that emanates from Washington, the EPA has assumed the role of a social engineer. And the Progressive wing in Washington has become so emboldened by the Obama Administration that it is no longer adopting the pretense of protecting the environment.
In a sane world, this would even turn Chevy Volt owners on the benevolent EPA. . . But, then again, a world with so many Chevy Volt owners, can hardly be described as “sane.”
