Cattle Call: The EPA’s Latest Target: Wood StovesSee More Videos
The EPA finalized its rule to control another perceived threat to the global ecosystem: wood stoves. These new regulation restrict what wood stoves manufacturers can make and will swell costs. We have all seen this exploding trend at the EPA to control and regulate anything it can get its hands on and this latest move shows just how desperate to expand its authority the EPA is. They have simply overstepped their bounds again, reaching into our homes to tell us what we can and cannot purchase to keep our own families warm.
Cattle Call: Time to Shrink the Federal WorkforceSee More Videos
This week I joined Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-SC) in introducing the Federal Workforce Reduction Through Attrition Act which is designed to cut the federal workforce by 10% by limiting new hires to 1 new employee for every 3 that retire and ensures that the government isn’t simply backfilled with contractors. There are limited exceptions for a state of war, or national emergencies, but otherwise if the limits are not followed this bill would institute a hiring freeze. It was previously estimated that this will save $35 billion over 5 years. With a national debt now over $18 trillion it is high time the federal government cutback to a workforce the American people can actually afford.
