The cost of Pence's politics

His family's gas stations cost Indiana more than $20 million to clean up his toxic waste. Like a good capitalist he reaped the profits, declared bankruptcy and left the environmental cost to the taxpayer. But that's the very nature of vulture capitalism, and Pence is just another example of it hiding behind his fake Christianity.

"The collapse of Kiel Bros. Oil Co. in 2004 was widely publicized. Less known is that the state of Indiana — and, to a smaller extent, Kentucky and Illinois — are still on the hook for millions of dollars to clean up more than 85 contaminated sites across the three states, including underground tanks that leaked toxic chemicals into soil, streams and wells."
