Why Is Protecting The Clean Air Act So Critical?

If someone asks you why it's so important to fight Republican efforts to roll back the Clean Air Act, repeat this quote from Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI):‎
"There is a case to be made that, in the contest between corporate profits and children's lungs, someone should be standing up for children's lungs."
In a related story in today's Washington Post, Steven Pearlstein details how Republicans are combining nonsensical job-killing rhetoric with people-killing policies.
