Fat Cat polluters drive environmental policies

July 4, 2019
Cape Coral Daily Breeze

To the editor:

The quote below is from a message sent by the League of Conservation Voters, which only costs $5 to join:

"Mike Pence just went on CNN to claim that the U.S. has the cleanest air and water in the world. That's an outright LIE - and we're calling him on it here and now.

"This is urgent: His lie is attempting to justify the EPA's plan to gut and bury President Obama's Clean Power Plan - allowing outdated coal plants to continue emitting massive levels of carbon and other pollutants.

"It's not that the Trump administration just doesn't get it - they are acting negligently in defense of Big Polluters."

This quote underscores that the erosion of our environment is not happenstance -- the Republicans simply don't seem to care about something that is as vital to mankind's survival as are clean air and clean water. Rather, it is the approval of their Fat Cat corporate donor class that matters because that's where the Vice President's money - his political fuel -- comes from. Sadly, it's about personal enrichment.
