Republicans Advocate MORE Asthma in the US


When 13% of adults and over 10 million children in the US suffer from a chronic breathing disorder, you would think that people and politicians alike would mount a war against the disease.

Asthma is a VERY serious issue in American and it is causing a large percentage of our population to suffer and take expensive medication.
Rates of asthma are rising, not falling, the experts noted. From 2001 to 2010, the proportion of people with asthma increased by almost 15 percent. And by 2009, asthma accounted for nearly 3,400 deaths, nearly 480,000 hospitalizations, 1.9 million emergency department visits, and 8.9 million physician office visits.

The CDC has an extensive fact sheet on the suffering and cost to our society.

Local news stations are now broadcasting “pollution alerts” so that Asthma sufferers can know whether it is safe to go outside or if they have to stay inside with the air filters on.

With all this suffering, how do REPUBLICANS react? They actually fight for the rights of corporations to spew more of the age old respiratory punishing coal dust and coal fire pollutants into their.

A U.S. appeals court on Tuesday overturned a key Obama administration rule to reduce harmful emissions from coal-burning power plants, sparking a rally in coal company shares and relief among utility firms.
Why would the Federal Judge block such an important measure? Simple. They received pressure from the Republican Party.

The official Republican Response was : The agency is endangering a fragile economic recovery by saddling U.S. industries with costly new rules, Republicans say.

There it is in black and white. PROTECT CORPORATIONS AT ALL COSTS. IGNORE SUFFERING OF AMERICANS.

Republicans Approve of Coal Power

Coal is damaging to health. No question about it. Why are Republicans backing it? The Republican financial base is made up of coal and oil barons. They must fight any measure that seeks to cut the sales of oil or coal. It is in all their literature and is the foundation of their Party.

Republican Party = Fossil Fuel Party

So who are you voting for? Forget the Fox News garbage…the truth is right in front of you. You saw it with Bush and you see it in Romney.

VOTE FOR PEOPLE AND NOT FOR OIL COMPANIES.
