The big lie on Capitol Hill is that gutting regulations will save corporate America some money, and the money they save will be used to create jobs.
Don’t believe it. Corporate lobbyists and their cronies in Congress are simply using the weak economy as an excuse to push their agenda.
Polluting energy industries are using it to fight environmental protections. Big banks are using it to fight consumer protections. Corporate agriculture is using it to thwart food safety protections. The list goes on and on.
They’re pushing the so-called “Red Tape Reduction and Small Business Job Creation Act" (H.R. 4078), which would devastate the ability of federal agencies to go about their work of protecting our environment, our health and our economy. A more accurate title for H.R. 4078 would be the “Let Reckless Corporations Do Whatever They Want Act.”
Tell your representative: Ignore the corporate lies. Stand up for commonsense regulations that protect our environment, our health and our economy.
