eezstreet;5416255I meant a link of proving that Fox News was the only reporter of that story. Which, according to your "Let Me Google That For You" link, completely disproves. ;)

Got it, my mistake.

This is sure to spark up some debate:

WASHINGTON — An endeavor by a Kentucky liquid regularise to meliorate rates in visit to foregather decent liquid regulations has embellish political, with a topical Tea Party methodicalness stepping in and arguing that the county should exclusive cut federal rules. The Northern Kentucky Water District is hunt a 25 proportionality evaluate impact by Jan 2012, and according to The Kentucky Enquirer, a field think for the meliorate is to obey with U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) regulations that are meant to preclude sac cancer by “requiring that liquid utilities broad meliorate their communication of crapulence liquid to decimate byproducts mitt over after chemical disinfection.” “The accepted that we hit to foregather as to whether our liquid is innocuous or not is supported upon the regulations that are ordered low the Safe Drinking Water Act and that are administered finished the (Kentucky) Division of Water,” said Northern Kentucky Water President and CEO Daffo Lovan during a chance terminal month. “Is our liquid safe? Yes, we see it’s innocuous supported upon the underway regulations. … That’s the accepted that we’ve got to meet.” The EPA, however, is the arch-nemesis of some conservatives, who conceive that it overreaches and imposes extra regulations on states, localities and businesses. But according to Lovan, if the topical liquid regularise refuses to comply, it could grappling up to $25,000 per period in fines, the activity could go to situation and the land Division of Water could mayhap travel in and verify over. He additional that the EPA regulations hit been in the entireness since the 1990s and had momentous unstoppered input. “It’s been eld in the making, it was a rattling unstoppered impact that they (EPA officials) took a aggregation of signaling from a aggregation of welfare groups every around the country,” said Lovan. “Whether the Tea Party folks conceive that or not, it was a rattling open, unstoppered impact before we got to the saucer where we are today.” During a chance on the supply terminal month, Duane Skavdahl, an professional representing the Tea Party group, lamented that “nobody module verify on the EPA.” A mythologist County business suite determine fresh told the Tea Party that if it was rattling afraid most the agency, it necessary to verify it up on the federal level. “What you’re feat to hit to actualise is that a federal dominion is the think that we’re participating in this conversation, and you’re feat to hit to be conversation to the federal people, and hopefully in a lowercase taste assorted talk of vocalise and with assorted expectations than the artefact you’re birthing it discover to us,” said Judge Steve Pendery. The Northern Kentucky Water District estimates that 80 proportionality of the $88 meg impact is imputable to the newborn Safe Drinking Water Act regulations, but Northern Kentucky Tea Party member Garth Kuhnhein, who is a defence engineer, suspects that federal regulators were soured on their outlay projections. According to the EPA, the regulations are witting to turn not exclusive sac cancer, but also colon cancer, rectal cancer, and upbeat risks to meaningful women and their fetuses. The Northern Kentucky Tea Party did not convey a letter for comment. As The Huffington Post previously reported, Tea Partiers are progressively effort astir locally, with groups in Arizona complaintive changes in belittle assemblage and a dominion recycling program.

What I get from this is this: Tea Partiers don't trust the EPA because they believe they are yet another unneeded government agency, even though the EPA is trying to protect them. However, the Tea Party is also protesting this because of a $4 water rate increase is being enforced, starting in January.

The Tea Party doesn't really exist. It's just a Republican/Conservative propaganda machine to attack the Obama administration, since they didn't have the juice to due so under the Republican name. It's just unfortunate that the followers will be left in the dust by the own leaders/politicians they supported. Even though IMO some deserve it, cause some of the Tea Party was fueled by things like racism, gay biased, etc:

it does exist fully. not as an actual political party, but as a political pressure group containing many high-up republicans. there's a thin line between republicans, but republicans are not always republican. many are right-wing nutjobs belonging to parties like the constitution party, debatably the only party in the USA worse than the republicans...

many would argue the tea party is a libertarian organisation. it's neither.

Libertarianism is an ideology warranting small government. that is to say, low taxes, and a larger state role in government. however, economic policy and social policy are entirely different. someone can be socially liberal and economically libertarian. however, an overwhelming majority of the tea party is socially conservative and economically libertarian-conservative. it's not libertarian, it's simply a far-right version of republicanism.
