These will also require 230,000 new union goon government employees.
This is what happens when government grows and grows and grows - it encroaches into every avenue of our lives. And it chokes capitalistic ingenuity and incentivizes business to outsource jobs. It is sickening.

EPA: Regulations would require 230,000 new employees, $21 billion
The Environmental Protection Agency has said new greenhouse gas regulations, as proposed, may be “absurd” in application and “impossible to administer” by its self-imposed 2016 deadline. But the agency is still asking for taxpayers to shoulder the burden of up to 230,000 new bureaucrats — at a cost of $21 billion — to attempt to implement the rules.
The EPA aims to regulate greenhouse gas emissions through the Clean Air Act, even though the law doesn’t give the EPA explicit power to do so. The agency’s authority to move forward is being challenged in court by petitioners who argue that such a decision should be left for Congress to make.
The proposed regulations would set greenhouse gas emission thresholds above which businesses must file for an EPA permit and complete extra paperwork in order to continue operating. If the EPA wins its court battle and fully rolls out the greenhouse gas regulations, the number of businesses forced into this regulatory regime would grow tremendously — from approximately 14,000 now to as many as 6.1 million.
The article goes on to say that these regulations aren't likely to work. You think? When have government regulations EVER worked?
The only thing that does work is the curtailing of YOUR FREEDOM.
I swear, these people aren't even TRYING to hide it anymore.
