This is NOT just about the EPA. ALL regulations that create significant compliance costs MUST be eliminated as the article reports “Obama said his decision was made in part to reduce regulatory burdens and uncertainty at a time of rampant questions about the strength of the U.S. economy.”
The AP report continues: “withdrawal of the smog regulation was a good first step toward removing obstacles that are blocking business growth. 'But it is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to stopping Washington Democrats’ agenda of tax hikes, more government ‘stimulus’ spending and increased regulations, which are all making it harder to create more American jobs,' said Boehner spokesman Michael Steel.” and “Thomas Donohue, president of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, said the move was 'an enormous victory for America’s job creators.'”
Obama finally is getting it, the Republicans' and the People know what is needed. Reduce regulations. Keep the mines and the coal fired plants open. STOP destropying jobs. Reduce regulations and taxes to CREATE jobs. Once the economy is cooking and we have an overabundance of jobs with higher wages and company supplied health care and pensions, THEN implement these regulations that will destroy jobs to cool off a hot economy to prevent run away inflation.
