GOP's Hypocrisy

October 13, 2002

California has attempted to control its pollution for 20 years with rules and regulations more strict than those adopted nationally. The Republicans now side with the auto manufacturers (Oct. 10) in claiming that California's attempts to cleanse itself are illegal because they go further than those adopted by the federal government. Whatever happened to that good old Republican philosophy of states' rights? When their "philosophy" interferes with their business ties or political base, as with the state-adopted initiatives in Oregon on the right to die or in California on medical marijuana, the Republicans' hypocrisy becomes obvious.
