The GOP’s “Certainty” Fraud


We need to extend the Bush tax cuts for the rich now, says the GOP — businesses need certainty!

Can’t pass health insurance reform, financial reform or energy reform, says the GOP — businesses need certainty!

But the Environmental Protection Agency’s regulations on the climate pollution of the largest emitters under the Clean Air Act that have been in the works for years? For the GOP, it’s fine to try to screw around with those just a few months before they’re set to take effect.

I suppose they’re correct in one regard — we can be completely certain where deregulation takes us.
