Rep. Paul Broun (R-GA), one of the most extreme House Republicans, is running for his party’s Senate nomination in Georgia. In an interview with a local radio host last week, Broun went through a list of agencies he wants to abolish, including the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Education, which administers federal student loans:
BROUN: I have proposed totally closing down the Department of Education […] Why don’t we shut down the EPA? I’d like to see that happen, also. […] The Department of Energy should be closed, and the Department of Labor, the Department of Commerce, all these things should be closed.
