Fracking should be banned, not taxed. We should send all of the fracking supporters to live in Centralia.

Well Mr. genius..If YOU knew what YOU were talking about then YOU would know that part of the tax revenue was to go to a clean up fund... Also because of political favors they were granted amnesty from clean air and clean water acts...Also exempted from many safety regulations.. I suppose name calling shows your superority ???? BTW I don't use gas in my home..Also have benn working my whole life...TRY AGAIN.....

Cowardice asks the question, "Is it safe?" Expediency asks the question, "Is it politic?" And Vanity comes along and asks the question, "Is it popular?" But Conscience asks the question "Is it right?" And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but he must do it because Conscience tells him it is right.- MLK
