EPA is now a scourge on society inflicting pain and abuse, inflicting direct harm, and causing cost and waste, not to mention their direct fraud and waste.

As pointed out in the article, all these legal actions and court cases against EPA show that Congress is not doing its job reigning in the beast EPA has become. Congress needs to eliminate it. Repeal the laws it stands on. Write and pass sensible, targeted, limited scope laws that establish adequate but limited enforcement agencies, and put limits on their scopes and size.

It makes no sense whatsoever.” Reportedly, the Senate is…
