A crook is a crook is a crook, and Scott Pruitt is a crook. He sued the very agency he is nominated to lead – he believes that regulating the environment to help future generations is not necessary and bad for business, and his policies would rob American citizens of clean air and healthy drinking waters while further lining his billionaire pockets! GOP Senator Susan Collins says NO this guy has got to go!
After careful consideration, I have decided to oppose the confirmation of Scott Pruitt for EPA Administrator https://t.co/QRuRtVua1X

I have significant concerns that Mr. Pruitt has actively opposed and sued the EPA on numerous issues that are of great importance to the state of Maine, including mercury controls for coal-fired power plants and efforts to reduce cross-state air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions…His actions leave me with considerable doubts about whether his vision for the EPA is consistent with the agency’s critical mission to protect human health and the environment.
While GOP Senators vote the partisan line, one GOP senator voting no will not shake Pruitt off his perch. Yet with such a close vote, and increased questions over Pruitt’s unethical actions against the agency, the Senate’s only weapon for such a horrendous anti-environmentalist is to limit debate and force a cloture vote!

Voting such an anti-environmentalist into the Cabinet will most likely bring about Trumpian executive orders to undo decades of environmental protection programs, leading to the increase of global warming, the destruction of people’s property, and the health and welfare of all citizens.
To ensure “America the beautiful” is truly beautiful and inhabitable for ourselves and future generations, we need all true patriots to resist the greed-centered Trumpian agenda – regardless of whether they have a “D” or an “R” after their names. Good on Senator Collins for understanding that and joining the fight.Click here for reuse options!
