Risch: EPA would tax alarm clock’s ring

Sens. Jim Risch and Mike Crapo issued a statement today expressing disappointment at the failure of resolution they backed, which failed today on a 47-53 vote, aimed at stopping the Environmental Protection Agency from regulating greenhouse gases. Risch said, “The EPA rule is nothing more than another power grab by a federal agency and an erosion of the Constitution of this great country.  It would lead to a massive tax on every aspect of American life from the ringing alarm clock in the morning to the last light switch turned off at night and it would be levied by bureaucrats who are not held accountable to the voice of the people.” Click below to read the full statement.
