"They have attached a poison pill -- literally, colleagues -- because it will kill 8,100 more people more than would have otherwise been killed from pollution," Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Cali.) said on the Senate floor today about Republicans trying to roll back a Clean Air Act provision.
Republicans included a measure to kill an EPA regulation in their payroll tax cut proposal.
"So have that for a Christmas gift," Boxer said after she scared people with the 8,100 number.

What exactly was the regulation the pubs wanted killed. You would think the link would have detailed it, so we could see what it was.
Was it one of those regs that special interests lobbied to kill? How important is this regulation, and does it destroy a lot of jobs? Or does it just make the bottom line of a few a less bit fat?
So odd that each time anyone mentions a regulation, they never tell you exactly what it is, and who it would affect. Makes me real suspicious. When you don't tell the rest of the story. That is propaganda, ain't it? That most of us view as the news.
