The continuous wastefulness of Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt is simply another example of government largesse gone awry. With every top-notch journey, every member of his security team and every secretive choice, Pruitt is reaching into each of our wallets and stealing from the American people. As a small-business owner in Nevada, I find this type of spending habits incredibly disturbing. Sen. Dean Heller, R-Nev., can not wait silently, enabling Pruitt to squander taxes generated in the Silver State.
Regardless of your position on environmental policies or tidy energy, every Nevadan ought to be outraged by the outright waste of taxpayer loan taking place at the EPA under Pruitt. Nevada prides itself on being a low-tax state– but being that includes the discipline of financial obligation. Our federal representation ought to reflect this principles.
Heller ought to step up and demonstrate management in the face of such public waste. It would be beneficial for the Republican politician Party to determine a fiscally responsible replacement for Pruitt quickly. Inactiveness at this stage makes certain to have electoral effects in November, particularly for incumbents.
