If you have Asthma, know family or friends that do, this is a MUST READ

Having had asthma off and off my entire life, I knew about this when it was first reported and was not broadly covered by the LSM. I am blessed to now only rarely suffer from asthma and that is when I have some other nonsense like an upper respiratory infection or a similar bug. Outside of my body being an orthopedic wrecking yard, my health is quite good and I have no complaints, and what good does it do to whine?

I know A LOT of friends and have family that will be affected by this retarded and moronic move by the the administration of the first muslim illegal alien potus and his equally stupid friends from other nations. Most of the folks I know will, I repeat will not be able to afford the expensive prescription inhalers. What the heck are they going to do? I have warned all of them several months ago to start stock piling the OTC inhalers as best they can.

We know how 'well' environmentally friendly or many green products work. THEY DON"T!

Just one more way the mullah in the White House IS waging class warfare. This will not effect all those union members with their bloated benefit packages who have Cadillac insurance plans like it will the many who are barely getting by.


Obama Administration Set to Ban Asthma Inhalers Over Environmental Concerns

Remember how Obama recently waived new ozone regulations at the EPA because they were too costly? Well, it seems that the Obama administration would rather make people with Asthma cough up money than let them make a surely inconsequential contribution to depleting the ozone layer:

Asthma patients who rely on over-the-counter inhalers will need to switch to prescription-only alternatives as part of the federal government's latest attempt to protect the Earth's atmosphere.

The Food and Drug Administration said Thursday patients who use the epinephrine inhalers to treat mild asthma will need to switch by Dec. 31 to other types that do not contain chlorofluorocarbons, an aerosol substance once found in a variety of spray products.

The action is part of an agreement signed by the U.S. and other nations to stop using substances that deplete the ozone layer, a region in the atmosphere that helps block harmful ultraviolet rays from the Sun.

But the switch to a greener inhaler will cost consumers more. Epinephrine inhalers are available via online retailers for around $20, whereas the alternatives, which contain the drug albuterol, range from $30 to $60.

The Atlantic's Megan McArdle, an asthma sufferer, noted a while back that when consumers are forced to use environmentally friendly products they are almost always worse.

Er, industry also knew how to make low-flow toilets, which is why every toilet in my recently renovated rental house clogs at least once a week. They knew how to make more energy efficient dryers, which is why even on high, I have to run every load through the dryer in said house twice. And they knew how to make inexpensive compact flourescent bulbs, which is why my head hurts from the glare emitting from my bedroom lamp. They also knew how to make asthma inhalers without CFCs, which is why I am hoarding old albuterol inhalers that, unlike the new ones, a) significantly improve my breathing and b) do not make me gag. Etc.

Well, tough cookies asthma sufferers! You should have written bigger checks to the Democratic party while you had the chance.
