Pruitt confirmed as EPA Head

"The 52-46 vote divided the Senate along party lines, with just two Democrats ― Sen. Joe Manchin (W.V.) and Heidi Heitkamp (N.D.), who are up for re-election in states with big fossil fuel industries ― voting to confirm Pruitt. Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Joe Donnelly (D-Ind.) did not vote."

1. At least...

Once that bill that will eliminate the EPA is passed, we won't have to deal with this asshole.

4. Let's hope those emails blow the fuck up in their faces

and forces that baster to resign. Trump will probable blow his top and make an even bigger fool of himself for all the world to see.

3. WTH is with the not voting idiots?

What a bunch of spineless dbags. I feel it's pointless to contact my two senators anymore about anything.


Peace

8. Turtle: He's dedicated to Enviromental protection.....

The real TRUTH is much different McConnell.....


“Mr. Pruitt has made his reputation litigating fiercely against the EPA’s most important regulations to protect public health and the environment — regulations that comply with federal environmental laws, that are based on good science, that have taken years to prepare, and that have taken fair account of all stakeholders’ input,” Sen. Tom Udall (D-N.M.) said in a speech on the Senate floor. “I cannot support a nominee to lead this agency whose record is so hostile to the environment.”

"Pruitt made his reputation suing the EPA 13 times, repeatedly joining fossil fuel players ― including Oklahoma Gas & Electric and the Domestic Energy Producers Alliance, an industry-backed group ― in filing lawsuits to halt regulations."

"Energy companies scratched Pruitt’s back, too. Since 2002, he has received more than $300,000 in contributions from the fossil fuel industry. Oil, gas and coal players donated heavily to two Pruitt-linked fundraising groups that paid Pruitt’s trips to Hawaii and New Orleans but spent little on elections. Last year, Exxon Mobil Corp. gave $50,000 to the Republican Attorneys General Association ― a group Pruitt chaired in 2012 and 2013 and remains active in ― three weeks before he launched a campaign to defend the oil giant against investigations into its record on global warming."
