Tex. Gov. Perry prays for weaker EPA, Obama

In a recent interview, Texas Gov. Rick Perry, a friend of Florida Gov. Rick Scott and a likely GOP presidential candidate, says that he prays for the president to “ask that his EPA back down these regulations that are causing businesses to hesitate to spend money.” #


From CBN News: #

Frankly I pray for the president every day. I pray for his wisdom, I pray that God will open his eyes. I wish this president would turn back the health care law that’s been passed, ask that his EPA back down these regulations that are causing businesses to hesitate to spend money. #

Several Florida lawmakers would also like for the EPA to roll back regulations, as is evident in recent proceedings around the state. The EPA has been painted as a job and business killer. #


Many environmentalists and citizens groups argue that EPA regulations of water, air and emissions could potentially lead to a better economic climate. Industries (especially in Florida) like tourism, real estate and fishing all benefit from a clean environment. #


Last February, Perry sued the EPA over its decision to regulate greenhouse gas emissions as a pollutant. Recently, he put his faith under a national spotlight with The Response, a large-scale prayer event that caused a stir in Texas and across the country.#

Most of the writings seem to say the same thing in different ways. We, as Americans, should be wary of those in sheep’s clothing, screaming into a bullhorn, and carrying loaded weapons to meetings, and realize that there should equal distribution of benefits and tax revenues across the board! The sad part to this election is the possible swing to the extreme left. I would like to echo the writings of others:
Yes, spending in many areas could and should be cut, but taxes should be raised on the very wealthy, too.
These Republicans and Tea Party-ers would rather see our country go bankrupt than pay their fair share. This is un-American.
I am grateful to be an American and I am in favor of raising taxes (and cutting spending) so that our country can continue to prosper.
The obscene Defense budget, the big elephant in the room is what needs to be slashed. GOP’ers suporting privatizing Medicare instead are heartless, corporate/military industrial complex slaves.
The Republicans keep posing the Medicare overhaul as a budget reduction when in fact, it’s nothing more than a subsidy for the mega-insurance industry – an industry with record profits that cries poor with every natural disaster.
The last election was about jobs, jobs, jobs. Voters want the government to stimulate the economy, not cut programs.
Its not necessarily that voters are opposed to overhauling medicare – its that they are smart enough to realize that the Ryan plan will not change the upward trajectory of healthcare costs.
It is the hospitals, free-standing clinics, physicians & drug companies that benefit most from current policies & procedures, not the patient.
I am so tired of hearing Republicans governors speak about how they don’t want “Obamacare”. Maybe they don’t want it but their constituents who don’t have medical coverage might have a different point of view. 
It’s time our representatives represented us.
