EPA Claim: We Regulate Drinking Water to Protect Kids from Autism

This is a story, Cybercast News Service: “Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa Jackson told a Senate panel that preventing children from being exposed to contaminated water could spare them from autism. Jackson made the remark on Wednesday at a hearing of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works in response to questioning by Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.), who asked if a recent executive order by President Barack Obama about regulations and the regulatory process means that the EPA can put any rules in place if ‘the benefits outweigh the costs.'” And she said, yeah.

Now, folks, I don’t care in what construct of our government or bureaucracy you want to sign on to, this isn’t right. There is nothing that can’t be regulated for the common good, you see? Under this rubric, under this umbrella, they can do anything as long as they say it’s for the common good, including death panels. So what this is really all about here is Obama giving an executive order that allows unelected people, these czars, if you will, and cabinet secretaries to do whatever the hell they want. He trusts them because they are him, and he is they. So the EPA administrator claims, claims, there’s no science here. Rachel Carson, “DDT kills kids or kills animals,” whatever the hell it did, get rid of DDT and now 50 million people are dead from malaria. And Rachel Carson to this day is celebrated.

Obama has announced today that he will veto any congressional legislation to limit the EPA. He’s gonna veto it. Veto it. Make him veto so much stuff, send it up there. I hope that they’ve got the energy and the gumption to keep doing this. “EPA Administrator Claims Regulating Drinking Water Supply Prevents Kids from Getting Autism.” You see how easy this is? Nobody wants a child to have autism. If I even go down this road the can of worms I would open by talking about vaccinations and autism. I mean they’ve got people convinced that all these vaccinations have led to autism in certain children. Don’t even try to talk ’em out of it. Not worth it. They believe it. So here comes the EPA. Lisa Jackson claiming she can regulate the drinking water supply so as to prevent kids from getting autism. Have you ever heard, have you ever seen any science about drinking water causing autism? Seriously, I’m asking you. I don’t have children so I may have missed it. I have to be open-minded about this. Dawn, you have not seen it? So this is out of the clear blue. Just out of the clear blue, we gotta regulate drinking water because of the public common good. They don’t have this power. They are appropriating it.
