ANALYSIS/OPINION:

If you or your children suffer from asthma, you should start worrying. At the behest of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and fueled by unproven global-warming junk science, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will outlaw the sale of Primatene Mist starting in 2012. Why? Apparently, the trace chlorofluorocarbon puff emitted from Primatene Mist terrifies fist-pounding, agenda-driven, politically connected environmentalists.

This puny puffer packs powerful medicine that saves lives, brings relief to countless Americans and is the only widely available over-the-counter asthma inhaler available to the 2 million to 3 million sufferers who use it.

With the loss of this asthma remedy, expensive and cumbersome doctor visits and prescriptions will replace a simple lifesaving device.

Know that the liberal left will literally suffocate you and me at their altar of religious environmentalism. As you struggle to restore your child’s breath, direct your anger squarely at the Obama administration, which refuses to exempt this ubiquitous lifesaving asthma remedy.

Don’t let these out-of-control bureaucrats sit on our chests. Stop this big-government overreach and call your member of Congress today. Demand that our citizens’ lives and liberty come first.
