How to Create 230,000 Non-Productive Jobs!

As this ship of fools called a carbon tax steams headlong towards the rocks and hard times for all Australians here is an insight into where the carbon tax money could be headed.

As we have seen in Australia under many Labor Governments the only thing to get big and healthy is the bureaucracy. Oh, sorry, and the defecit! So here is how that is happening in the US under Obama's unworkable climate legislation.
"The US Environmental Protection Agency has said new greenhouse gas regulations, as proposed, may be “absurd” in application and “impossible to administer” by its self-imposed 2016 deadline. But the agency is still asking for taxpayers to shoulder the burden of up to 230,000 new bureaucrats — at a cost of $21 billion — to attempt to implement the rules.
The EPA aims to regulate greenhouse gas emissions through the Clean Air Act, even though the law doesn’t give the EPA explicit power to do so. The agency’s authority to move forward is being challenged in court by petitioners who argue that such a decision should be left for Congress to make.
The proposed regulations would set greenhouse gas emission thresholds above which businesses must file for an EPA permit and complete extra paperwork in order to continue operating. If the EPA wins its court battle and fully rolls out the greenhouse gas regulations, the number of businesses forced into this regulatory regime would grow tremendously — from approximately 14,000 now to as many as 6.1 million."
