I feel obligated to remind people of the good things which keep happening because a Democrat is in the White House. Behind all of the press' endless round of crap about death panels and birth certificates, and anything but the truth, progress is still being made every day.
From the Chicago Tribune:
"The Obama administration is cracking down on BP as the oil company overhauls its massive refinery in northwest Indiana, one of the largest sources of air pollution in the Chicago area.
In response to a petition from environmental groups, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on Monday ordered Indiana regulators to revamp a new operating permit for the Midwest's biggest refinery. The groups, along with elected officials in Illinois, contend Indiana had allowed the oil giant to avoid stringent requirements under the federal Clean Air Act.
Tougher pollution limits could help relieve problems with lung-damaging soot and smog in the metropolitan area that stretches around the tip of Lake Michigan."
Isn't it nice to see our communist, socialist, terrorist, anti-American president actually trying to enforce the clear meaning of the law, for once?
