In a memo to Republican lawmakers, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) outlined his caucus' plans for the fall including almost weekly votes to repeal so-called ""Job-Destroying Regulations."

While the "Super Committee" focuses on $1.5 trillion in deficit reduction, Cantor says the House will "continue our focus on the jobs crisis."

Beginning in the week of September 12th, the chamber will take up legislation restricting the National Labor Relations Board's ability to restrict where employers create jobs a response to the ongoing litigation over Boeing's new South Carolina production facility.....The House will also seek to delay some of President Barack Obama's new emissions regulations for power plants, boilers, and cement production plans which Cantor says cost jobs.

Risky game with some of these votes.

With the votes against the EPA, the Dims will turn around and use it as "Additional Proof" that Republicans don't care about the environment and only about big business.

Its not just the act of doing the votes. They need to also go before the voters and explain why the votes will help create jobs, and how these regulations are hindering jobs.

I don't think all that many Democrats outside of DU feel that way. Almost everyone has read or run up against some regulation he considers stupid, inconvenience, elitist, or expensive.

Listen to what they say when any Republican tries to get EPA regulations under control to allow new oil exploration. Anwar? Gulf oil? Tar Sands? Any of them and its the same cry.

Then comes any new power plant. Namely coal and nuclear.
