EPA===started by Nixon too, I think. The one decent thing Nixon ever did.:
Environmental PROTECTION Agency… maybe Mr. Wheeler has never figured out
what P in EPA stands for.
Hmm maybe he thinks the E in EPA stands for EVADING
Of course, this is the Trump Administration so maybe EPA now stands for," Evil Potentates Attack : (

This example of morbid corruption within large government agencies reminds me of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration commissioner, Arthur Hull Hayes Jr, who decades ago permitted the potentially health damaging artificial sweetener Aspartame to be placed in many foods and drinks, before he then left his FDA position for a lucrative job with the public relations firm owned by the Aspartame patent holder and producer, G.D. Searle Company.

This, despite being urged by credible health academics to refrain from immediately granting FDA approval of the sweetener—a chemical concoction discovered accidently in 1965 while G.D. Searle Company chemist James Schlatter was testing an anti-ulcer drug.
