That's apparently how the EPA sees it, as they continue to inflict egregious and costly rules on Americans in the name of "environmental protection and public health".
(CNSNews.com) – Seven months after being subpoenaed by Congress, Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Gina McCarthy conceded that her agency does not have - and cannot produce - all of the scientific data used for decades to justify numerous rules and regulations under the Clean Air Act.
In many cases, as it happens, they never had the data in the first place; they seem to rely upon "secret science". For the first time in more than two decades, Congress supoenaed the EPA in order to subject the data to independent analysis - but the Agency now concedes that they don't have it.
The subpoena was issued as the EPA moves to finalize strict new regulations that could place 90 percent of the U.S. population in non-attainment areas and impose an additional $90 billion annual burden on the U.S. economy.
In other words, they're just making it up as they go along. After all, they only want what's best for the little people.
