Republicans For Pollution

Republicans are insisting in budget negotiations on continuing to add to global warming, allowing cement makers to add mercury to the air, keeping the Chesapeake Bay polluted, and allowing coal companies to conduct mountaintop removal mining. 

Who knew that the Tea Party movement was really a mass outpouring of support for more pollution?  They want to shut down the government over these issues?  I don't think that they'll win any political wars in a government shutdown by going to the barricades for utility companies, air pollution and the right of corporations to create Appalachian moonscapes.
