  1. Erik Osbun says:

    The GOP is correct on this issue. The EPA HAS RUN AMOK. Actually, the EPA should be removed.

  2. Dan Stewart says:

    Don't just rein it in, eliminate it, along with epa & any other dept that thinks it is above the law. While you're at it, get rid of the illegal pos potus.

  3. What has taken them so long to realize it has run amok? It is not like this just started since BHO was sworn in January.

  4. Do not give them anymore money they are liers and scumm they need to be stoped now
