From the article: "Changes rammed through on Friday 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, siding with business groups over environmental activists and federal regulators in almost every instance."
We need to balance the budget so that we don't pass debt on to our children, but in the process we must not pollute the world they will live live in.

The Americans have spoken? in what language? George W. Bush et al, destroyed the economy, and the "american fence posts" put those same republicans back in office. Obama didn't cause the current economic crisis, George, his wars, and gifts to the elite that own the republicans did. But then, you'd need an informed, intelligent sophisticated electorate that didn't fall for the stupidity of the Tea party patriots. Since they all parrot the same nonsense, it's clear where it comes from.
