HAGEMAN: Bureaucrats Don’t Produce Anything
Are we actually "saving the environment" or have we over regulated to the point that we are not only not saving the environment, but are making it harder for humans to live?
Wyoming congresswoman Harriet Hageman went after the bureaucrats of Washington DC for being people who make "rules," which operate in the same ways as congressional laws, about things they really don't know anything about.
Hageman spoke of farmers, ranchers, loggers, and people in the energy industry, as people who actually produce the things we need.
She then called the bureaucrats people who produce nothing.
The two other witnesses are government employees, neither of who really produce anything," said Hageman.
But they have a lot of opinions about the government using sticks to beat our producers into submission to do what our government employees and law professors want them to produce.
You can hear her entire statement in the video above.
I apologize for what the federal government is about to do to you, Hageman said to the producers.
She went on to blame recent forest fires, not on "climate change" but on failed government management of lands.
Hageman spoke of a balance that is needed to make sure that we protect our environment an recourses while at the same time protecting the production of our economy.
She was offended at the accusation that Republican's don't care about the environment.
She also lambaste the bureaucrats in the room for effectively writing law, through their rules and regulations process.
But it is congress that has giving that authority to the bureaucracy.
Here more of what Congresswoman Hageman said in the video below.
Congress will write a law, explaining what they want to accomplish, then tell the bureaucracy to write the "rules" to make that happen.
At that point the bureaucrats become law makers.
It's not exactly how how founding fathers wanted things done when they wrote the constitution.
Hageman, a Constitutional attorney, who has argued cases before the supreme court, is not a fan of the power currently given to the bureaucrats, by congress.
You'll see, in the above video, her contempt for our current system, as she speaks with these people.
