A further sign that the American people no longer see the Bush administration as a competent ruling entity, 12 states are suing the government over the Environmental Protection Agency
rules that allow companies to limit the information they
disclose to the public about toxic chemicals.

According to Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal, the EPA's action destroys a 20-year program that required
companies to report the amount of lead, mercury and other toxins they
released.

"Polluters can release 10 times more toxins like lead and mercury without telling anyone," he said.

Another blatant gift to the corporations, the lack of compassion
towards human beings shown by the Bush Administration is completely
disgusting. Given their track record however, it is not shocking.
