  • Ending "sue and settle" via the EPA - more swamp draining

    Sue and settle schemes reward pressure groups, and hurt the rest of America

    EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt recently issued a directive to end a 20-year string of “sue and settle” cases that have funneled untold millions of tax dollars to environmental organizations. Predictably, those groups and their allies have been apoplectic about it.
    Many of these groups have grown from grassroots citizen movements to gigantic cash-flush conglomerates, with much of the cash coming from the government they appear or pretend to be fighting. Many now have separate legal arms with hundreds of attorneys, whose primary job is to sue the government and keep the cash flowing. They are part of the $13-billion-per-year U.S. environmental industry and lobby.

  • I think most of these law suits were planned to bankrupt the parties that the liberal government opposed. Drag the suit through the courts for years, until they gave up.

  • Actually, it's the other way around.

    lib/dem/greenie organizations sue the government (taxpayers) to gain settlement cash which they use as operating revenue to file other law suits and on and on.

    Often, (usually?) (always?) they are little concerned about the issue(s) about which they sue.

    It's the taxpayer cash that they want.

    Only in the US.

  • In any respect, you are correct, Al, the swamp needs to be drained.

    President Trump is trying to do so and is making some progress but the swamp is a leviathan full of unbelievably evil creatures.

    Hopefully, President Trump can continue to do the work of the American People and not be destroyed or worse by such creatures.

  • About time.

    The parasitic organizations will, of course, sue.
