1. the epa has been the object of regulatory capture

and does need thorough reform. someone had an agenda in that colorado incident; i doubt it was the employees of the agency justifying a bloated budget. more likely a "job creator" who wanted the property or minerals or contracts involved, and contacts to pressure the agency.

the agency has done a great job with clean air & water regulations. superfund cleanup maybe not enough. their failure to hold oil companies responsible for leaks should be addressed.

if "perfection" is the standard then we live on the wrong planet.
