Your question (homelessfooser) disappeared with the thread consolidation & now both your question & my answer make no sense, lol. So for the sake of clarity, in the original thread you posed the question about what if any was the point of the EPA reducing automobile environmental regulations?
This makes me SO sad- it seems intended to make more money for auto manufacturers, saving money on expensive research & development to meet guidelines, but what it really does is pollute our country & make Americans sicker. Not something any real patriot would want, I can assure you. And the money “saved” is only for those running the companies, not something that would trickle down to workers. It’s more about the 1% lining their already bulging pockets at the expense of us all. You’re right that it makes little sense…unless you assume that those behind this want our country to be sicker, poorer & dumber, ie. to fail, or at least, to stop fighting back & just do as we’re told.
Keep the big picture in mind & remember how trump constantly defers to Putin, who is one person whose agenda is ALL about wanting the USA to fail on an epic level, & who is evil enough to try & make it happen. And remember that trump continues to attack science & education, free speech, health care & wages for the working class…I believe you have your answer right there. We now have a “few” mega-rich people who couldn’t care less about the environment or human rights, they only want to be dictators & probably plan to live on some unpolluted island somewhere* while most of us do all their dirty work. (*assuming they can find one that’s not underwater?)
