The Republican presidential candidates all agree on one thing: they want to end the EPA's job-murdering environmental regulations. (2:30)

THESE PEOPLE UNDERSTAND.

AND WHILE NOT ALL REPUBLICANS

AGREE WITH HERMAN CAIN'S

VISIONARY TAX PLAN, THEY DO ALL

AGREE ON ONE THING.

>> WE NEED SERIOUS REGULATORY

REFORM, NOT JUST REPEALING OBAMA

CARE, BUT ENDING THE E.P.A.'S

REGULATORY REIGN OF TERROR.

>> AND I GUARANTEE YOU THE

E.P.A. WILL HAVE DOORS LOCKED

AND THE LIGHTS TURNED OFF.

>> YOU'RE DOING NOTHING MORE

THAN KILLING JOBS.

IT IS A CEMETERY FOR JOBS AT THE

E.P.A.

>> STEPHEN: YES.

THIS JOB-KILLING CEMETERY IS

MURDERING JOBS AND THEN BURYING

THEM IN ITSELF.

JOBS.

EVERYONE KNOWS POLLUTION IS A

JOB CREATOR.

WHEN I WAS A KID MY FIRST JOB

WAS WORKING AT MY SIDEWALK

STAND.

AND, FOLKS, WE ALL KNOW,

COUNTRIES WITHOUT ENVIRONMENTAL

REGULATIONS ARE KILLING US IN

THE JOB MARKET.

JUST LOOK AT CHINA.

IT'S IN THERE SOMEPLACE.

[LAUGHTER]

CHINA IS THE WORLD'S BIGGEST

EMITTER OF GREENHOUSE GASSES,

AND IT ONLY HAS 4.1%

UNEMPLOYMENT.

PLUS, THANKS TO MERCURY

POISONING AND FACTORY SUICIDES,

POSITIONS ARE OPENING UP ALL THE

TIME.

[LAUGHTER]

NOW, FOLKS, I HAVE ALWAYS, AND

THIS IS WELL-KNOWN, I HAVE

ALWAYS DESPISED THE JACK-BOOTED

BIRKEN STOCKS OVER AT THE

E.P.A., EVER SINCE IT WAS

CREATED BY THAT BLEEDING-HEART

LIBERAL RICHARD NIXON.

[LAUGHTER]

GET A HAIRCUT, HIPPIE.

OF COURSE, THE AGENCY WAS FORMED

BACK IN 1970.

BACK THEN AMERICA'S ECOSYSTEM

WAS FULL OF HAZARDOUS CFCS,

DDTS AND 3BGS, AND OHIO'S

CUYAHOGA RIVER WAS SO POLLUTED

THAT IT CAUGHT FIRE 11 TIMES.

WHO KNOWS WHAT CAUSED THAT?

IT COULD HAVE BEEN POLLUTION.

PERSONALLY I SUSPECT THE TROUT

TORCHED IT FOR THE INSURANCE

MONEY.

[LAUGHTER]

BUT THAT WAS THEN.

THIS IS NOW, RIGHT, JOHN

STOSSEL?

>> THANK GOODNESS FOR THE E.P.A.

THE AIR AND WATER ARE CLEANER

THAN THEY USED TO BE, BUT THEY

PASSED THOSE RULES.

THEY MADE THE AIR AND WATER

CLEANER.

IT'S DIMINISHING RETURNS.

THEY'VE DONE A WONDERFUL JOB.

STOP ALREADY.

STICK A FORK IN IT AND IT'S

DONE.

>> STEPHEN: YEAH, STOP

ALREADY.

WHEN SOMETHING IS CLEAN, YOU

DON'T NEED TO CLEAN IT ANYMORE.

THAT'S WHY I SOLD MY DISHWASHER

AND MY BIDET.
