Another government program "Misled the public"

EPA = Environmental Protection Agency (ran by the white house)

http://www.commondreams.org/headlines03/0823-03.htm


New York's leaders responded with dismay.

Rep. Jerry Nadler, a Manhattan Democrat, called for a Justice Department investigation. "That the White House instructed EPA officials to downplay the health impact of the World Trade Center contaminants due to 'competing considerations' at the expense of the health and lives of New York City residents is an abomination," he said in a news release.

Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., said in an interview it was "understandable that in the midst of a crisis the White House did not want the EPA to sound alarmist." But, he warned, "If the public loses faith that things are safe when the government says so, we'll have done more damage than a pointed statement the week after 9/11 would have."

The White House did not respond to requests for comment.
I bet those 50,000 people who were told it was safe and now suffering from lung problems are all probably wanting that good ol healthcare reform!

...

Lovely how things like this always just seem to fall in place.

Side note:

I thought we were all pretty much in the center in terms of political stance. I guess that's not the case. That website is garbage.

Either way, it happened. Leader of the EPA told everyone the air quality was safe. Now many people are suffering from the effects of it.

This again, Yin, shows you the power of the government. In addition, she was granted immunity after a trial in court, so NO ONE was held responsible for the words that came out of her mouth.

To me EPA is a joke, just another way to control us.

Not even New York is helping many of the volunteers who are suffering from different lung diseases because of it. They need money, they should have the greatest healthcare available. These are the officers, firefighters who are heroes and yet they do not get the proper care? They should be the 1st on the list for proper care.

You are so closed-minded.

did you mean "mislead the public?"

At least our socialized education system is working!

Seriously though, throughout your entire politically-aware life, you thought the government was being honest?
