WHITE HOUSE: MONEY MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE LIVES OF NEW YORKERS.
The White House directly stopped the Environmental
Protection Agencys warnings about the toxic fallout from the World Trade Center explosions that covered most of Manhattan
with toxic dust. It had "financial concerns" that came before protecting the health of the people of New York. Among them
were re-opening the stock exchange as quickly as possible, and limiting clean-up costs and liability claims.
of Bush's lies, thousands of Americans will suffer cancers, emphysema, heart attack, stroke, birth defects, stillbirths, sterility,
eye/ear/nose/throat disease and much more.
were two of the last big buildings constructed with asbestos in the U.S., whose health effects are widely known. Once ingested,
the fibers can and do make cells cancerous.
The EPA knew that spewing all that asbestos
into New York's air was a horrific event, and that lives could be saved by taking certain public precautions. Bush stopped
that from happening.
The WTC also contained countless computer
screens, light fixtures, calculators, telephones, network servers, paging systems, copy machines and much more high-tech office
equipment laden with mercury and other toxic metals. The concrete, flooring, plastics, chemical cleaners, furniture, metal
struts, window glass---all that was also pulverized into a horrific brew of murderous dioxins, furans and lethal powders with
hideous killing power.
As the EPA knew, those living nearby were
owed detailed information denied them by Bush. So were those working in the ruins for days, weeks and months. And those who
have innocently proceeded with lives downwind.
But such things cost money. And some buildings
might never have reopened. And the stock market might have stayed shut longer.
Lives would have been saved, but Bush decided
they were less valuable than those financial concerns.
Now he's decimated the Clean Air Act, allowing
more power plant emissions in yet another give-away to the rich corporations that fund the GOP. So more Americans will die.
But Bush will have more money to spend on his 2004 re-election campaign.
