"Newsflash, Justaman.

Many people who voted for Pres. Obama are now not happy with Pres. Obama."

Many, many people who voted for Pres. Bush are still not happy and that's why the Republican Party lost 4 million registered voters.....

I'm one of them!

Look around a little. Your faux "notice" about Republicans is fizzling fast.

Staying on subject here.....

How many more years should WV & Ohio Coal Companies be given to comply with 1978 regulatory mandates?

I would think it's time for Congress to enforce the laws written 30 yrs ago..Especially since the House of Degeneratives only worked like 80 days last year.....

Don't take my word for it. Look around a little. Your faux outrage has fizzled.

There were once "rigged" looking shortages on sugar, coffee and anti-freeze. The fed said "do not drain your anti-freeze every year (as we did). It is good for 7 years." Not so many shortages after that. The fed can and does do good things. Hunting and fishing 4 non-landowners would mostly not exist were it not for the fed. Family vacations would change much were it not 4 nat. parks. Road travel would be less desirable without the fed. Interstate system.

BBL: U mus have missed the story on how a penny a box add to mac & cheese would pay 4 the min. wage increase. LS: why is gas so high after the big bakken find? More in oil does not mean lower cost it just means more. U will pay 3.59 or 3.69 because we say so. It is fixed.

You libs are too much!! We hate clean air and water!! Almost as much as we hate Solyndra! I drive by falkirk on almost a daily basis, don't see much coming out of those stacks except water vapor, looks more like a cloud factory rather than one of those nasty coal fired power plants!! When the EPA sets new regs, you think the companies cover that cost?! Yep, they do, none of it gets passed to consumers!! Just like minimum wage, mcdonalds gonna pay $10/hr to their staff, mcdonalds will soak that up, they won't raise the price of food! Print more money to get us out of the hole Obama!! It's really quite easy!!

I think it's time for many industries, Coal Companies in particular, to honor the environmental agreements made in the 70's,80's,90's & 2000's.....

After all the monies they lobbied for & received under the guise of research, tax incentives for investing & taxpayer monies(BILLIONS) for improving their industry they now waive the crying towel & are spending millions crying FOWL?

I would like to see a two-part poll if Americans were wiling to pay $5 more a month for clean air & water and IF the Energy Sector was capable of regulating itself in regards to the best interests of all Americans???

Justa how can we rein in an agency like the EPA when we are trying to move forword as a country....the next thing the EPA needs to do is decrease the size of soda cans by 20% a year...for let's say 20 years....will kill 2 birds with one stone (no...I don't kill birds). One...eliminate all that CO2 being released by soda....and B....getting that BigSugar out of our lives since we cannot handle that responsibility ourselves...I feel government ONLY can accomplish those things...

Congress is the EPA, or at least some members are. The EPA is not a scientific community it is a political community.

Congress can't do anything. Why should they rein in something that is trying to help the dumb people out there. I guess MDN and Republicans don't want clean water and air.. you know the important things that keep us alive
