The EPA playing favorites is not new. The EPA is interested in one thing, and one thing only, and that is job security. I have not seen a group that works so hard to hurt America, other then the political parties themselves.
On a regular basis these clowns implement (with no taxpayer oversight) rules and regulation that destroy individuals and small to medium size businesses. Like government, they pick winners and losers on a regular basis.
When concerned citizens, and or groups decide to do a little digging the EPA purposely makes it difficult to get the information requested. The flip side is when a group that is friendly to the EPA wants info, they roll the red carpet out for them.
What I want to make clear is we the taxpayers have no oversight on the EPA. These people, that were not voted in control a lot of what we can, and can not do. There is one word for this, it is called UNCONSTITUTIONAL.
The article below explains this a little more in-depth.
Conservative groups seeking information from the Environmental Protection Agency have been routinely hindered by fees normally waived for media and watchdog groups, while fees for more than 90 percent of requests from green groups were waived, according to requests reviewed by the Conservative Enterprise Institute.
CEI reviewed Freedom of Information Act requests sent between January 2012 and this spring from several environmental groups friendly to the EPA’s mission, and several conservative groups, to see how equally the agency applies its fee waiver policy for media and watchdog groups. Government agencies are supposed to waive fees for groups disseminating information for public benefit.
“This is as clear an example of disparate treatment as the IRS’ hurdles selectively imposed upon groups with names ominously reflecting an interest in, say, a less intrusive or biased federal government,” said CEI fellow Chris Horner.
