And those agencies in RED GOP NAZI states would shut down overnight if the EPA was gone......Now I am for a federal law saying that all states have to follow current laws and ruels and then do away with EPA(to save money)......But what you GOP want is so business and people can dump whatever they want and spew whatever they want without recourse...... My self I think the environment laws need to have stiffer fines... But I know you GOP want to turn the USA into a toxic waste dump like your buddies in commie china have there.

Then you the people start picking up your own garbage, stop throwing it out the car windows, stop dumping in the ditches, stop throwing glass and plastic bottles in the ditches, stop clearing all the grain fields of trees, stop cutting evergreen trees for Christmas. There are laws because of you people who do not care, and if you say you do you are lying, just go walk around I have been in your state and neighboring states and have seen your lakes and rivers.

Go look at the Mississippi, go to New Orleans, Alabama, Tennessee, Georgia and many more then tell me you the people are keeping things clean.
