Like most representatives, Bishop and Love ignore the massive national debt.
This is called scorned conscience....when one ignores that nagging little voice
in the back of your head promoting sustainability. All discretionary spending
should be used to pay down the debt, not build out our national parks and make
them even busier.
I like the idea of a sliding fee based on the time of year. For instance if
July is the busiest time to see Zion's then triple the entrance fee. Either the park service will see an increase in revenue or there will be
less traffic and therefore less maintenance needed.Either way it is
Anything that Bishop proposes is not good for our parks, environment or
Hmmm. $12 Billion you say? I think I've heard that number recently....
I love our national parks and monuments. We need to fund them as a high
priority. They are really for our children and grandchildren.
A novel idea would simply be to raise the entrance fees to make the national
parks self sustaining. It would also relieve congestion and pressure on park
The NPS needs funding. For the past decade the GOP has strangled the agency by
cutting funding and raising user fees. Now, it says it will restore funding by
providing more access to private companies to get oil and gas from our public
lands. When you step back, you understand what their strategy was all along.
Sounds like robbing Peter to pay Paul, Mining/Fracking require toxic chemical
pumped into the ground leaving the area inhabitable for any of life or
vegetation.So on one have you have a nice clean park on the other
you have a toxic wasteland Basically in order to make profits for
Bishop and company there going to destroy the land and as a consolation prize we
get a clean park....Ill take a dirty park over not having to worry
about the tap water becoming flammable as it was in the Midwest. People being
able to ignite their tap water ( yes this is a real thing google it )
Here's an idea that isn't a gimmick like the one proposed by Bishop.
Stop cutting taxes, especially for the rich, and appropriate the necessary funds
to maintain the taxpayers property. For crying out loud, these kinds of schemes
just make government more complicated, drive up costs, and lead to more
regulations. It makes no sense whatsoever. As an example, if I need to pay for
something, I don't deliberately cut my income and then come up with a
complicated scheme to raise money from other sources. See the madness of
Bishop's contrivance? It doesn't have to be that hard.
