HR 861 Terminate the Environmental Protection Agency.
Yes. This is a real bill. This is what it’s called.
Many corners of the internet are saying, don’t worry, it can’t pass. But even if it can’t pass, it can weaken. Bill by bill, soundbite by soundbite, actions that will devastate our environment and literally make us sick will be normalized. Safety will chip away. We’ll all suffer.
Groups like the AARP — hardly a voice for radical environmentalism — are speaking out.
