Hey everyone, guess what? … The Repubs just blocked a vote to prevent pollution in America … “The $1.2 trillion bill [defunds] every Cabinet agency through Sept. 30, when the current budget year ends. It imposes severe spending cuts on domestic programs and foreign aid. Targets include schools, nutrition programs, environmental protection, and heating and housing” (Yahoo News).

“Changes rammed through the House on Friday and Saturday would shield greenhouse-gas polluters and privately owned colleges from federal regulators; block a plan to clean up the Chesapeake Bay; and bar the government from shutting down mountaintop mines it believes will cause too much water pollution.In almost every case, the measure sides with business groups over environmental activists and federal regulators.” (AP, USAToday.com)

Yaaay!  Thank you Repubs … I mean if there was one thing I need more of in my life it’s toxic waste and pollution … thank you SOOO much!
