    Default Governments wants right to Pillage,Plunder and Profit.

    If this Senator had his way our beautiful country would look like modern day China..

    He spoke of his introduction into the Senate of the ENFORCE the Law Act, also known as the “Executive Needs to Faithfully Observe and Respect Congressional Enactments of the Law Act of 2014, explaining that the legislation “allows Congress to go to court if they feel the president is not applying the law as the Congress intended.

    Blunt didn’t mince words as he provided examples of executive overreach, beginning with the controversial Keystone Pipeline. “The 6th anniversary of Canada’s offer to sell us oil more cheaply than we can get it now is coming up, and we still haven’t said yes,” he stated.

    Moving on to the Environmental Protection Agency, he cited two policies that he called “devastatingly foolish.” The Clean Water Rule, he explained, gave the EPA the authority to monitor and improve water quality in navigable rivers. “Everyone understands what ‘navigable’ means,” he said, “and the EPA did too, until recently. Today, they think ‘navigable’ means any water that flows into any other water that eventually flows into a navigable waterway.”

    Blunt didn’t discount efforts to protect the environment. “Of course,” he said, “we need to use our resources better and cleaner and more efficiently.” He continued, “Other countries look at their natural resources and think, ‘economic advantage.’ Our country looks at our most plentiful resources; we’re the Saudi Arabia of coal, and think ‘environmental hazard.’”

    Mr. Blunt needs a trip to Germany where he will see how a government respects the environment and regulates business and the people to make sure they have clean air and water.
    On my trip it was explained to us why we saw the roof tops of many buildings with plant life on them.
    Because they better monitor the air pollution that way. Tomatoes and tobacco are planted since that seem to be more receptive to dirty air. At first sight of a problem the city of Stuttgart mandates all vehicles coming into the city conform to the harshest emission standards in the EU.
