Obama White House Circumvents Congress with New Emissions Standards

Last Thursday while the Republican National Convention was well underway, the Obama White House circumvented Congress yet again. This time, it was to impose radical new environmental restrictions that will be carried out by the many bureaucracies that have exploded under the Obama administration. With Cap and Trade dead, but almost passing with the Democrat super majority, the White House is doing anything they can to regulate by fiat, since they know their extreme agenda won't pass through Congress.
These radical new regulations come one week after the EPA released new miles per gallon fuel economy mandates for automobiles, showing that Obama is using his final months in office to leave his mark.
Obama and his radical liberal special interest groups are targeting energy production and imposing "climate change" regulation, which will stifle innovation and drive costs up for consumers. The changes mandated by the administration, although admirable, are cause of significant concern. Consumers will not save from this alleged innovation, as companies will pass along costs to consumers. If anyone in the Obama White House ever worked in the private sector, they'd figure this out.
Expect more radical mandates through executive orders as the November election nears - they know they're running out of time.
