Nineteen members of the House of Representatives have co-sponsored articles of impeachment against Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Gina McCarthy. According to the Dallas Morning News, the resolution accuses McCarthy of perjury and making false claims to the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology. At the same time, it added that this resolution is highly unlikely to move forward for a hearing before the House Judiciary Committee, let alone enough momentum to legitimize a vote on the House floor. The chairman of the House Committee On Science, Space, and Technology, Rep. Lamar Smith (R-TX), has not sponsored the resolution.
As of now, the EPA is still moving full-throttle on implementing the president’s environmental agenda that seeks to combat global warming by cutting greenhouse gas emissions from 2005 levels by 32 percent by 2025. It will surely increase electrical costs on Americans, with its economic impact striking rural America the hardest. It could gut millions of jobs from black and Hispanics, and seems to hit states that mostly voted for Romney in 2012. The power plant regulations alone place nearly 300,000 jobs on the chopping block.
