EPA Sec'y Lisa Jackson (A Michelle Obama pick, I'd say)
EPA administrator Lisa Jackson was forced to admit she had not even read the Waxman-Markey carbon taxing bill before her agency released a report claiming the economic impact of cap and trade legislation would be “modest.” Asked how the EPA could produce a report on a bill they hadn’t even read yet, Jackson said: “We had to make assumptions.”
What others say about Ms. Jackson:
Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility criticized her performance as New Jersey Commissioner of Environmental Protection, stating:
DEP employees describe Ms. Jackson as employing a highly politicized approach to decision-making that resulted in suppression of scientific information, issuance of gag orders and threats against professional staff members who dared to voice concerns.
Hmmm . . . I'm seeing a pattern here.
