GOP: Republican-led House hazardous to our health

Re: “GOP bill would let Border Patrol ignore environmental laws” (TNT, 10-24) and “Proposed biomass regulations a threat to jobs, critics say” (TNT, 10-29).

These two stories connect the dysfunction of House Republicans’ attacks upon EPA rules and regulations with the potential impacts locally: degradation of public lands in Washington state and air-quality problems in Tacoma.

Regarding the biomass regulation, on a face mask I will write the word “pass” followed by the bill number and wear the mask around town. Not only good politics, but good for my health.

    Have fun with that Rog… maybe you could go stand on the corner in downtown Tacoma with the other 2 OWSers.

    The full result of our illustrious public education system. Sentient thought is a myth to those who subscribe to this foolishness. Not the least bit surprising when you consider the idiots elected to office in the Soviet state of Wa.
