I suppose you could say he's going to get rid of a myriad of environmental regulations, & that might work to some degree for a couple years. I do however think it's a selfish & short-sighted thing to do to damage the environment permanently for the sake of temporary profit. You won't complain until your water starts doing this:

Maybe you don't make over 100,000 a year, but if you did I bet you probably wouldn't be happy about your taxes increasing to give a tax-reduction to people making over 250,000. Especially when Romney's stated he won't need to raise taxes in order to give tax-deductions to people making over 250k, i.e, he lied.
I am blown away by the amount of people that find the environment to not be a paramount issue when it comes to policies in this election.
Thank you, Rob, for posting that vid. We are on the brink of serious environmental disaster if the EPA regulations are tromped over by Romney and crew.
Calling you a troll is giving you the benefit of the doubt. Otherwise you're Craig T. Nelson.
Also, all tournament winnings or side amounts(such as when they give away $500 or so for best hand of the evening) I fill out the appropriate paperwork. If those amounts combined total over 10k for a year, I must report it. Each time I win one of those things they take my ID and fill out paperwork that I sign. Chips won and cashed out after an evening of play however do not have to be reported unless they reach a specific total for that transaction. If you want to say Ive found a loophole, be my guest, but I do not do anything illegal.(Well, often times I drive over the speed limit) Also, all of those games are ran by the state lottery. Each hand is raked. I happen to drive a lot of that action. Therefore, I help the state bring in plenty of money.
No one pays my share. Also, being legally married after having registered for a liscense and filed the appropriate paperwork with the state, my wife and I are considered ONE. We file jointly. She works full time as a teacher. Whats mine is hers and whats hers is mine. So even on years where I dont work full time teaching, Im still contributing to the public tax funds.
On top of all of that, that ******* Obama took away our $300 teacher credit. He also stripped those of us who pay back student loans the ability to use what we pay in interest on those things as a deduction. Why? So he could give more food stamps to poors.
I dont take handouts when I dont need them bro. Fortunately, I never have been in that position. I use the skills I have to EARN a living. And you can bet your ass that when I need money and Im capable of working, I dont sit around waiting for government to send me checks.
Listen, I know everyone can fall on hard times. And Im all about helping people out when they are in need. Thats a great thing about this country. Having a system where people can have each others backs is a good thing. Its when people are so easily allowed to abuse that system that everyone gets dragged down.
