Polluting industries' campaign donations weaken the EPA

It's no different, really, than the polluting industries making their campaign contributions, and then the EPA wanting to impose more strict ozone standards, and President Obama basically vetoing the EPA. We know that's not in the public interest. President Obama has to know that's not in the public interest. He's serving the interest of those polluting industries.
