The EPA Hurts The Poor, Again

 

The EPA thinks inexpensive inhalers will help deplete the ozone layer. As usual, the poor suffer.

As a lifelong sufferer of asthma, I have always depended on inhalers to provide me with fast-acting, lifesaving medicine.  Fortunately, I am able to afford expensive prescription inhalers, but many Americans hit hard by the faltering economy are not so lucky.

Until now, however, there has been a cheaper option for low-income families—over-the-counter, epinephrine-based inhalers have helped an estimated 1-2 million people treat their asthma for about $20 per unit (the prescription brands can cost up to 3 times that amount).

But now thanks to our out-of-control federal government, low-income Americans will be denied this over-the-counter relief as of December 31.

  1. Asthmatics are young and old and without the medication some people die if not available. I believe our government intends to protect their air more than human beings. WE WORSHIP GOD NOT GOVERNMENTS..LIFE, LIBERTY AND FREEDOMS ARE WORTH FIGHTING FOR…THE US CONSTITUTION PROTECTS OUR GOD GIVEN HUMAN RIGHTS. ALSO I BELIEVE THEY ENVY OUR FREEDOMS WHICH IS A DEMONIC SPIRIT THAT HATES AND DESTROYS OUR BLESSINGS TO BE BLESSED. HIGHLY FAVORED AND DEEPLY LOVED BY OUR GOD WHO CREATED HEAVENS, EARTH AND MANKIND IN HIS IMAGE. WE WORSHIP OUR CREATOR NOT THEIR IDOL WORSHIP OF THEIR RELIGIOUS CULTS. HATE AND ENVY IS SUICIDE. BUT I SHALL LIVE LIFE ABOUNDING IN FAITH, GRACE AND GOD BLESS THEM…PRAY WITHOUT CEASING…PHIL. 4:6 and RESTED ASSURANCE OF HIS PROMISES. GOD LOVES US.

  2. EPA, you are a bunch of idiots. Get out of our lives and take Obama with you.

  3. I have a prescription plan and when they change to the new inhalers, I did not get the relief as I did from the old one. So cleaner air is killing asthmatics with insufficient medicine for green air.

    I wonder if the EPA realizes that what ever they do to regulate the environment is offset by a factor of ten by China. These idiots and their clean world philosophy need to be taken to the woodshed, they have not one clue about what they are saying or regulating. They are operating under a progressive/socialistic agenda, "destroy from within".

    Don't be so criical of the truth Mr. Admins.

  6. This is just another way of more population control. If you are not in perfect health and can work, you will be eliminated. Just like having the 15 panel to approve if you get the procedure done or the new medicine approved in Obamacare.
    President Obama's "science czar," John Holdren, once floated the idea of forced abortions, "compulsory sterilization," and the creation of a "Planetary Regime" that would oversee human population levels and control all natural resources as a means of protecting the planet — controversial ideas his critics say should have been brought up in his Senate confirmation hearings.
    John Holdren co-authored a book regarding the dangers of over population and the potential solutions. Forced abortions, mass sterilization, and a “Planetary Regime” with the power of life and death over American citizens are in the forefront of Holdren’s preferred methods.

  7. The population at large could be sterilized by infertility drugs intentionally put into the nation’s drinking water or in food;
    Single mothers and teen mothers should have their babies seized from them against their will and given away to other couples to raise;
    People who “contribute to social deterioration” (i.e. undesirables) “can be required by law to exercise reproductive responsibility”—in other words, be compelled to have abortions or be sterilized.
    A transnational “Planetary Regime” should assume control of the global economy and also dictate the most intimate details of Americans’ lives—using an armed international police force.

  8. President Barack Obama is expected to reverse the "Mexico City policy" soon.
    The Mexico City policy prohibits using American tax dollars to fund or promote abortion overseas. Douglas Johnson is with the National Right to Life Committee.
    "The effect of President Obama's order," says Johnson, "is going to be to put millions of dollars into the hands of organizations that aggressively promote abortion as a population control method overseas."
    Much of the money, he notes, will be spent in Third World countries such as Africa, Latin America, and other developing countries — many of which outlaw abortion

  9. So exactly what is Agenda 21? The following is how the United Nations defines Agenda 21….
    The following is language from a UN resolution that was adopted by the UN General Assembly that was designed to further the implementation of Agenda 21….
    "….population growth rates have been declining globally, largely as a result of expanded basic education and health care. That trend is projected to lead to a stable world population in the middle of the twenty-first century… The current decline in population growth rates must be further promoted through national and international policies that promote economic development, social development, environmental protection, and poverty eradication, particularly the further expansion of basic education, with full and equal access for girls and women, and health care, including reproductive health care, including both family planning and sexual health, consistent with the report of the International Conference on Population and Development."

  10. Most Americans don't grasp it yet, but the truth is that the global elite are absolutely obsessed with population control. In fact, there is a growing consensus among the global elite that they need to get rid of 80 to 90 percent of us.
    Sadly, this philosophy is now regularly being reflected in official UN documents. For example, the March 2009 U.N. Population Division policy brief begins with the following shocking statement….
