The Daily Quote

“House Republicans have laid out their fall jobs agenda, and it mostly revolves around killing environmental and labor regulations while pushing tax cuts for businesses. For good measure, they’re also planning another round of attacks on the health care reform law…. Republicans seem particularly focused on overturning EPA regulations — some that haven’t been finalized or even proposed.”
