In a classic demonstration of the core conservative belief that politicians in Washington understand the policies that should be set at state level better than anyone in the states do, Trump is planning to revoke the waiver California has enjoyed from federal clean air standards for decades.
The auto companies don’t want this; the affected states don’t want this. But nothing should stand in the way of federal power exercised from DC.
Great to see Republican and conservative principles dissolve in the hope of achieving short term gains.
The article is fairly humorous… this is actually a fallback position for Trump because the work of imposing a complete rollback of standards has proven too hard for his team of “none but the best people.”
