Same ol' story from Republicans: pollute the water, pollute the air

Well, guess what.  The Republicans in Congress want to cut regulations.  Regulations that protect the air we breathe and the water we drink.

We've seen this before.  They get into power, they overshoot.  They're overshooting again.  Amazingly enough, even a good percentage of Republicans think this is wrong.

Hill Republicans move full speed ahead to slash Obama era rules
"Among the regulations on the Republican chopping block are new Interior Department rules aimed at protecting waterways near coal mines and preventing the release of methane, a potent greenhouse gas, from oil and gas wells, as well as a Labor Department rule that expands overtime eligibility."

Of course.  Nothing they do surprises me.  I just don't know what level of appalled I'm going to achieve.
