American Lung Association with EPA funds targets Rep. Fred Upton

H/t to Kenny Solomon.

Take a look at this, guys. How low can they go? Rep. Fred Upton (R-MI#6), chair of the House Energy and Commerce Committee went home to his constituents in Kalamazoo to find one of these right across the street from his office:

There are three others in other parts of the district.

Upton and Senator James Inhofe (R-OK) have introduced companion bills in attempts to rein in the over-reaching EPA that seems to be intruding way too far into our lives. Upton’s bill passed committee earlier this month. Inhofe has attached his bill to a small business bill.

So one wonders how the EPA fits into this? The EPA has given over $20 million to the American Lung Association over the last 10 years, $78,000 to the ALA of Michigan:

Cute kid, isn’t she. Really tugs at your heart strings.

Just what they want.

  1. This is what the libs do. They always use a victim, the kids or whoever. While the Republicans are trying to cut spending, it would be wise for Upton to point out this $20 grand in spending as wasteful partisan advertising on the House floor. He could turn this back on them by saying what necessary or needed programs would have been helped with that $20 grand that was wasted.

    • Dead. On. SEC.

      This is the kind of isolation and polarization the Right is so terrible at. We tend to discuss things in broad, philisophical terms which, quite frankly, our American Idol culture just doesn’t have the patience or intellectual heft for.

      We *must* break it down in *exactly* this way – put faces on their perfidy every. chance. we. have.

  2. What authority did the EPA have to be handing money to private organizations? Was this written into some law that allowed them to give money to organizations for “public education” or some other purpose? Or did the management of the EPA take it upon himself to spend US taxpayer money on causes that fit their political agenda?

    If this was unauthorized, heads should roll. If this was authorized by law, I agree with SEC, Upton and others should be making LOUD noises about these slush funds that are buried in most bills.

    • I think it’s buried somewhere in Bambi’s EO that extended EPA’s authority to work unilaterally (and outside the controls of Congress)…like every other loophole these actors have found or been given to circumvent the will of the people.

    • And by the same token, under what authority do your local schools take time out from teaching the irascible Little Johnny how to read in order to celebrate ‘Earth Day’.? Oh, wait, some bleeding heart from Wisconsin got a law passed recognizing that day, I forgot.

  3. It would be easier for me to take leftists concerns seriously if they exhibited even a tiny bit of sincerity or honesty in their assertions.

    As it is, they can go pound sand. I hold them in utter and complete contempt. And when the ALA joins with them this way, they eliminate any chance that I will ever support their group, the same way AARP destroyed their chances during the Bush Administration.

  4. I just discovered on the EPA document, if one click’s on the little blue triangle at the extreme left it opens up to give more details. Under the ALA MI grant, there were 3 separate grants. You can click on each one of those for more details, it gives specific names, dates, and specifically what the grant was given for.

    I didn’t check the others, but you won’t believe the MI ones. Especially the 2nd one..
