This article talks a lot about potential costs related to possible new rules, but doesn't even mention the health concerns related to Dioxin. Also, the American Chemistry Council is referenced and we are provided with a quote from one of its members, but no context. How about explaining that this is a group representing major chemical companies with a vested interest in opposing stricter government regulations?

Why are the state and city officials so up in arms and so quick to mention costs. Its always the cost they are concerned about, never the public health. They sound like Chairman Mao's "Capitalist Running Dogs!"

Thank God for the EPA, they're looking out for public health, unlike city and state bureaucrats.

Tell the EPA to get lost, we don't need them, don't want them, can't afford them. Do the country a big favor and just eliminate the worthless, totalitarian outfit.
