Pompeo Comments on McCarthy’s Visit to Kansas
EPA Administrator needs a little Kansas common sense.Wichita, Kan. – The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator, Ms. Gina McCarthy, is in town today to speak at the National Farmers Union’s annual national convention. Congressman Mike Pompeo had the following to say about her visit:
“I am pleased to welcome Ms. McCarthy to Wichita, Kansas. As the leader of an agency that continues to inflict enormous costs – and thereby reduced opportunity for jobs for Kansas – I am looking forward to learning what message Ms. McCarthy is going to share with her audience. Those who produce our food, more often than not, find themselves negatively impacted by the rules her organization has implemented. The EPA has, under Ms. McCarthy’s leadership, killed jobs, raised energy prices, and is now trying to regulate ponds and streams over which it has no authority. Kansas farmers know how to take care of their land better than bureaucrats in Washington. I am proud that she will today have an opportunity to pick up some Kansas common sense that she can take back and apply inside the elitist bubble in Washington, D.C. in which she spends most all of her time.”
