Yet again, this administration is showing its true colors. Green…and not for environmental, health or safety, but for greed and profits. You would think that after the Deepwater Horizon disaster, and the embarrassing response by a supposedly environmentally responsible company, our Government, a government charged with protecting all of us, would adopt more stringent safety standards.
Well, it did. At least the prior Administration did. So what does the current compilation of greedy snake oil salesmen do? They announce that they are going to scrap these rules.
Oh why not…after all, this group is clearly of the opinion that the taxpayer should subsidize industry for the benefit of the few.
This is shameful.
