Obama EPA’s Latest Ruling Will Cost at Least $11 Billion a Year
Let’s face it.
The purists in the Obama Administration don’t care if their policies destroy the American economy.
Tucked down in the last paragraph of this article at The Hill is this little nugget. The Obama EPA’s latest piece of regulation will cost at least $11 billion a year.
Former White House energy and climate adviser Carol Browner on Tuesday lamented GOP-led attacks on the Environmental Protection Agency, arguing they’re at odds with the historical success of agency protections.
“There does seem to be, among some, a lot of hostility toward EPA writ large, just toward the whole idea that we are going to set public health standards and we are going to require companies to meet them,” said Browner, who left the White House earlier this year and is now a senior fellow with the liberal Center for American Progress (CAP)…
…The rule proposed in March, according to EPA, would prevent as many as 17,000 premature deaths and 11,000 heart attacks a year, among other health benefits.
The agency estimates that annual costs of the rule would be $11 billion, but projects that they will be outweighed several times over by the value of the health benefits.
So which junk science report did they pull the premature death and heart attack numbers from?
What a crock.
