Clean Air Act and Clean Water Act, bad for businesses, good for overall American health<hr size="1" /></blockquote><span class='postcolor'>
I love it when people who've never even been involved in businesses make automatic assumptions. Almost as fun as "Jews are faggots".
If the "overall Americans" were so concerned about the environment, they should stop littering. Singapore can jail you 2 years for littering.<hr size="1" /></blockquote><span class='postcolor'>
Who's making assumptions now? Stopping all littering won't change the amount of damage done to the environment. Yeah, and wars would end if everyone got laid and loved each other....
A good number of businesses in the agriculture, manufacturing, forest, mining, and retail sector would prefer no regulation compared to forced environmental regulation if they had a choice. More profits for the shareholders, and America is a big country to dump your trash. So what if I omit some service industries, or the local end retailer who doesn't have to do the dirty work and acts as the middleman. Let's pick every detail from one general sentence on a message board, shall we?
