Default Republicans in America want to close EPA

I don't know much about this, I just want to see what other people know, but I put it in debts because it's political.

All I know is ive heard a lot about republicans saying they want to shutdown the Environmental protection agency if they win house and senate in congress, because they say it will help the economy.

The only reason they're saying that is because it will allow them to do whatever the hell they want with dirty energy.

They need to die, preferably painfully.

The economy this, the economy that. Give nature the priority for once, congress.

No **** the party in bed with big energy is going to want to do the bidding of their corporate masters.

I always like to wonder what people who want to gut the EPA are thinking about what they are going to breath if the air is polluted, or what they will drink when the water is full of fracking fluid. We all live in the same closed system you dumbasses, any polluting you do is going to some back and bite you in the ass, too.

This really makes me sad..
The environment is our lifeblood.. People in positions of Authority only seem to look at the short term consequences of destroying the environment such as fueling the economy and creating housing blocks..The long term consequences such as lesser air quality, increased potential for land and mudslides, species becoming extinct and humans and other animals having no connection to nature anymore are so severe..

They've stopped making any sense at all.

They've asked small businesses to stop hiring to damage the economy too. (as a result of a threat made to the president)

I don't get how closing the EPA helps the economy either? Sure, the largest of businesses would benefit, but I can't see the smaller ones benefiting much. Also, I would think the EPA would create middle class jobs to, to run the whole organization?

Ecology is bad for business.

What else can be said?

I just dont get why they would want to close it down, when the EPA could open up jobs such as having people clean up litter, pollution, garbage, or other Eco-friendly stuff I'm job form. I mean the government would have to pay the people doing the work, but it creates jobs at least temporarily.

I just don't understand how the EPA is such a threat to the economy. It seems to me that republicans wanting to disband the EPA is a show of "this is what our part stands for! RA-RA-RA" but it doesn't actually do much productiveness.

From what I understand of American politics, it is naive to expect productivity from the Republicans.

*Who* is actually saying that they want to do this? Republicans talking about shutting down the EPA sounds like some lefty's hypothetical "dream scenario" for a campaign platform turned rumor.

Apparently a lot of the GOP front runners claim they would shutdown the EPA if they took office

There aren't many GOP frontrunners, and I can't find anything about any of them saying such a thing. Got a source? Of course, people say a lot of wacky stuff in politics, but this particular claim just seems inflammatory. Even if it were the desire of one particular person, a President can't just delete an entire government agency with an executive order anyway, and I can't imagine such a thing gaining any kind of broad support.

I think most Americans would balk at the idea of closing the EPA, even if they themselves are not environmentally conscious. It's one of those things that just "sounds bad," even if the EPA is a consistent target of government accountability investigations as a result of doing things like granting Energy Star logos to fake products, including a gasoline-powered alarm clock! Good grief.
