8. MTBE was once banned in NC
MTBE was once banned in NC and then the lobbyist came saying it was "hard work" to make all the different mixtures. Now we have the hazardous waste, MTBE, in our water.

The national banks did the same thing. They said we have 50 different sets of rules and with each state having regulations, it is just too hard. So the federal government took away your right to sue a national bank in state court and the rights of states to regulate the national banks.

It is all bullshit to undermine the authority of the states. If it is too hard on the oil companies, let them pull out and let somebody else do all that "hard work" and make those mega-millions.
