Vukmir: Let’s Trust the Polluters to Not Pollute

Share

When she’s not desperately trying to prevent the people of Wisconsin from having access to the same health care we pay to allow her to have, Wisconsin’s Michelle-Bachmann-in-training, GOP Rep. Leah Vukmir takes every opportunity to suck up to big business and industry, particularly polluters.

During today’s debate and passage on AB 281 to restrict the amount of phosphorus in certain cleaning products Vukmir hopped to it to try and push off the effective date for five years.

Her rationale is that we should trust the polluting chemical industries who say they’re going to develop more environmental-friendly cleaning products. Good point, the polluters are always good for their word.

Vukmir’s nonsense was ignored. Thankfully.
