Scott Pruitt Will Make America Great — For Polluters


Scott Pruitt Will Make America Great — For Polluters

Bill Moyers

In this exclusive web essay, Bill Moyers takes on President Trump’s choice to lead the Environmental Protection Agency. Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt has a track record of putting the business interests of the energy sector before the environmental and health interests of the public. He has spent his career fighting the rules and regulations of the agency he is now being nominated to lead. His expected confirmation threatens to make America great for polluters again.

America will not be made great again under Donald Trump. He represents everything that keeps America from being great, and yet many believed his simplistic rhetoric and alternative facts. Fasten your seatbelts America!


Won't Cleveland will be able to attract more tourists once the Cuyahoga River is afire again like it was on the eve of the advent of the EPA ?

Perhaps other cities will try to outdo Cleveland with even bigger fires on their rivers ?


His 'Business Interests First' before the safety of all Americans mantra should disqualify him for this position. Any senator giving their approval to elevate Pruitt to EPA Chief does so knowing he will sacrifice protections to humans for larger profits for Corporations. This, in my opinion, is inhuman.


As seen in Bill's Video, what Sen. Markley revealed, on the Senate Floor, about Pruitt's actions,
i.e. actually representing the interests of an Energy Company, to the detriment of the Taxpaying Public,that signed his generous Paycheck ($260G's /year as State Attorney General), SHOULD, by any sense of logic, result in Criminal Charges against him.
