Trump’s war on EPA regulations will kill jobs and a lot of people

“A toxicologist who works for the Environmental Protection Agency expressed great frustration that the crucial work of testing chemicals on the market for toxicity has been interrupted. This work had been slow and complex, and short of manpower. Now, things are worse, the scientist writes. “The next time you reach under the sink to pull out a cleaning product, ask yourself if you’d really like to know if it was causing cancer, or if it was safe.” The shutdown, the toxicologist concludes, will keep toxic chemicals on the shelves “longer than they otherwise should have.”

But this is exactly what the Koch brothers want. They each make $2,750,000 per HOUR, and don’t care how many innocent consumers (and children) die from their marketed, but untested, household chemicals. (Please consider the great number of those to have died for no crime beyond living near a Koch factory.)
