EPA political hack revives senior death discount"

A Bush administration political appointee at EPA is promoting what some call a "senior death discount" -- the idea of placing less value on the lives of elderly people in calculating the health benefits of reducing pollution.

The publication Inside EPA reports that Brian Mannix, associate administrator of EPA's Office of Policy, Economics & Innovation, made a pitch for the senior death discount at a recent workshop on economic analyses. Mannnix previously worked at the Mercatus Center, an industry-funded "think tank."

Bush administration officials floated the senior death discount idea several years ago, but they were forced to shelve it following protests by environmentalists, some senior groups and some in Congress.
