.....Because It Was An Obama Plan!

"Two weeks ago today, President Trump* signed a widely overlooked executive order to revoke Obama-era standards that required federal infrastructure projects, like hospitals, to factor in scientific projections for the effects of climate change, such as increased flooding. Critics say the reversal will put more lives in danger by exposing U.S. infrastructure to the kind of damage inflicted by hurricanes and superstorms including Harvey, Sandy and Katrina. Obama’s order marked a rare climate change measure that was praised by both conservative and progressive groups. Trump announced the reversal during the now infamous press conference in the lobby of Trump Tower that was largely overshadowed by his remarks defending the white supremacist protesters behind the violent rallies in Charlottesville, Virginia."

"Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos has empowered rape deniers. She has appointed an anti-feminist activist – who publicly doubts women who report rape – to hold schools accountable for responding to reports of sexual assault. Now, DeVos is looking to gut the Department of Education’s (DOE) current policies and regulations to curb gender-based discrimination and violence in schools. Specifically, DeVos is targeting the Obama administration’s guidance on how the DOE should use Title IX, which mandates gender equality in education, to protect survivors of campus sexual assault.

 

When educational institutions do not protect sexual assault survivors, they are not only sanctioning rape and other forms of sexual violence, but also denying these students the opportunity to continue their education. Survivors of sexual assault often suffer from depression, PTSD and other mental health conditions. Many even drop out of school after an attack.

 

Recently, DeVos sat down with misogynistic “men’s rights” groups that promote victim-blaming and intimidate assault survivors to get them to drop their cases. It is appalling that she is now appearing to sympathize with these sexist bullies and trying to institutionalize their cruel ideologies. Rape deniers should never be a part of a conversation on how to protect survivors of sexual violence.

 

It is time for DeVos to hear from tens of thousands of people who stand with campus sexual assault survivors and demand that she listen to them, enforce Title IX and preserve the 2011 DCL guidance."

"Donald Trump wants to reverse any progress made under President Obama, regardless of the consequences. In the latest dangerous example, his administration is trying to repeal the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Clean Water Rule – which protects drinking water for one in three Americans.

 

The Clean Water Rule protects millions of miles of streams and 20 million acres of wetlands. Fossil fuel companies and factory farms have been fighting the rule since it became law in 2015. Now with industry shill Scott Pruitt as Trump's EPA administrator, the agency is ready to do their bidding and repeal it.

 

The EPA must accept comments from the public whenever it considers changing a rule. And while Trump's EPA may not listen to us now, if we document widespread public opposition to their irresponsible action, we can use that later to fight them in court.

 

Tell the EPA: Do not repeal the Clean Water Rule."

Obama was a failure as President.  He wasn't able to pass laws, so he regulated and used executive orders to shove his agenda down the throat of Americans who didn't want it. 

But now Trump can undo everything Obama did to hurt this country, and he's doing it. 

Piece by piece, Obama is being erased.
