The IRS and the EPA under Obama have become huge weights around the necks of every business in America. This was a promise made and kept by Obama. Obama, along with Marx, believe business should only exist to fulfill the need of the worker and any profit that would be earned was really stolen by the evil capitalist and must be returned to the community through taxation. Obama and Marx also believe that in the effort of the greedy capitalist to make a profit, he not only steels from the worker but he also destroys the environment. Now we have the EPA trying to expand its control on business even more so the Marxist/Progressive goal of centralizing all aspects of commerce can be achieved.
Business groups are joining with local government representatives and conservative lawmakers to criticize the Environmental Protection Agency’s water jurisdiction proposal, imploring the Obama administration to rescind it.
Opponents of the proposed rule say the EPA’s effort to redefine its authority over creeks, ponds and wetlands is written so broadly that it could put millions of new miles of rivers and streams under federal control, along with ditches, puddles and dry creek beds.
Such a change would be a major impediment to commerce, as businesses could suddenly need permits for all manner of routine activities like building fences or digging ditches, they charge. The effort by the EPA and the Army Corps of Engineers would muddy the waters for landowners and others already confused over whether they need permits, representatives said.“The proposed rule provides none of the clarity and certainty it promises,” the American Farm Bureau Federation wrote in comments to the EPA, which were due Friday.
“Instead, it creates confusion and risk by providing the agencies with almost unlimited authority to regulate, at their discretion, any low spot where rainwater collects, including common farm ditches, ephemeral drainages, agricultural ponds, and isolated wetlands found in and near farms and ranches across the nation,” the group said in a document signed by dozens of other agricultural associations.
The EPA, in vilation of the constitution, already has far to much authority. Because the citizien has to prove his innocence rather than the EPA having to prove the guilt of the citizen as required by the constitution, the EPA already has undo power. This type of absurd regulation will greatly increase that power.
