Trump's choice to head EPA will clearly face a backlash among democrats. Yet, Pruitt is a man whose entire political career has been financed by the oil and gas industry. It is Pruitt that has used "state autonomy" as a rational to allow fossil fuel companies to destroy air and water quality. Yet, he is the same Attorney General that has fought the idea that individual states can decriminalize marijuana.In other words, destroying the environment- that is a state issue, not federal. Marijuana, states have no say, the federal government controls. Once again we see the hypocrisy that radiates from Republican so-called Federalists, that decry Washington, until it supports their from of moral authority. In this case, they see no connection between a clean healthy environment and their moral responsibility.
Congress must filibuster this nomination!
