“And I would begin with the EPA, because there is no other agency like the EPA. It should really be renamed the job-killing organization of American,” she said.

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and GOP contender echoed Bachmann’s sentiments, arguing for the replacement of the EPA with an “environmental solutions agency.”
