    EPA overturns 16-year-old Texas permit program
    By RAMIT PLUSHNICK-MASTI (AP) – 1 day ago
    HOUSTON — The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on Wednesday officially overturned a 16-year-old Texas air permitting program it says violates the Clean Air Act, leaving some of the country's largest refineries in a state of limbo.
    The move comes after years of backdoor bickering, negotiations and public arguments between the EPA and Texas. The argument recently escalated from a battle over environmental issues into a heated political dispute over states' rights.
    Gov. Rick Perry has been using it to drive home his contention that President Barack Obama's administration is overreaching, saying in a statement Wednesday that "Texas will continue to fight this federal takeover of a successful state program."
    The EPA's decision, announced in a statement, will force some 125 refineries and petrochemical plants to invest millions of dollars to get new permits. Many of the plants may also have to invest in updates to comply with federal regulations.
    The decision did not come as a surprise to Texas or the industries. EPA regional director Al Armendariz has said for months he would disapprove the permits if Texas did not comply with the Clean Air Act.
    The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality's chairman Bryan Shaw insisted Wednesday the state's permitting program complies with the Clean Air Act and has improved air quality in Texas. However, in an effort to satisfy the EPA's concerns, Shaw said the commission recently changed the rules but apparently the EPA "did not take them into consideration."

    That this happened as Obama launches his bid for amnesty is no surprise.
    I guess we will need more stimulus money and gas stamps for the poor.

    This is his war on Oil. He will not stop until he kills the oil industry in this country, and he could care less what people in Texas think. They didn't vote for him. That is the same reason he is so lack luster on the spill. He wants it to be bad, so more people will support his war on oil. He can afford to ignore what is happening in Texas, LA, Mississippi, and FlA, because......you guessed it none of those states went for Obama in the Election last time. So he does not give a flying fuck what those people think. To the Marxist and Black Liberationists that Obama is those people in those states are the Enemy. Bitter people clinging to guns and religion.

    I don't think anyone realizes just how badly we fucked up letting Obama win, and have a Democrat near Super Majority at the same time. I am afraid we will never get them out again. If They Push Amnesty through and get them all to vote before 2012 were toast.

    Obama told us he planned to do all this. All you had to do was read his book and words from the past. Look at who he hung out with, and associated with. Listen to his words about Marx, and how our Constitution was flawed. Hear him say he was going to fundamentally change America, to know all this was coming.

    He wants to collapse what is left of Capitalism in America so the people beg for Socialism.

    He is the most Dangerous threat to our Freedom, and America as we all know and love it, we have ever known. Bar none.

    The Hussein knows that oil is the lifeblood of our economy. The sooner he can destroy it, the sooner he can bring the whole country down for good. All so he can rebuild it brick by brick in his vision of a national socialist union.

    This is the tyranny of a bureaucratic oligarchy.

    Ethanol plants aren't in compliance so why do they continually get a pass?

    Dutch,

    It does demonstarte that the average American just isn't too bright. Like Ive always maintained - take California and New York out of the Union and you're left with a bunch of backward, religious fanatic, incapable of logical thought.
