Politics over health?

>> Sunday, September 13, 2009

Of course the Bush Administration chose politics. Big surprise.

Enforcement lapses were particularly bad under the administration of President George W. Bush, employees say. “For the last eight years, my hands have been tied,” said one E.P.A. official who requested anonymity for fear of retribution. “We were told to take our clean water and clean air cases, put them in a box, and lock it shut. Everyone knew polluters were getting away with murder. But these polluters are some of the biggest campaign contributors in town, so no one really cared if they were dumping poisons into streams.”

The E.P.A. administrators during the last eight years — Christine Todd Whitman, Michael O. Leavitt and Stephen L. Johnson — all declined to comment.
Don't ask me what Mike Leavitt has ever accomplished in his political career. Nothing stands out during his time as governor of Utah. His speech at 1994 Girls' State in Utah was pretty bland too.
