Goes into effect. Where will that money we collect on the rich. Where will it go? Pay down the Debt or extra money to pay for other useless program? Surpose you collect $38 Billion from this new tax. What would you use it on? And why was he not behind the President today?
Severn Trent until a few years ago owned all the water testing laboratories (at least the big ones) in the United States, the chain is now called TestAmerica. I don't know if it's still a part of Severn Trent.
In the UK they are a primary water service provider..
TestAmerica did all the Exxon Alaska oil spill samples in their Denver lab 20 years ago, and guess who Exxon sent the Horizon samples to from the Gulf spill? You got it.
They of course were not allowed to discuss any of the results.
European infrastructure planning, that dis-invests from nuclear energy industry, because of environmental dangers, as Japan proved, and facilities only designed for 50 yr.

AND YET there is no concerted effort by the international community to treat this AS THE EXISTING DISASTER AND POTENTIALLY WORSE DISASTER IT STILL CAN BECOME.
I have devoured every article on Travon Martin and have yet to read about some media reports that have covered actions, or purported actions, asked of the Justice Department: Initially, when the fury of the case unfolded there was a one line report that the Sanford Police Department was "sending a delegation of two to the Justice Dep't"!
