Such a bill, even if passed in the House would required 60 votes in senate (filibuster).
Psycho Pombo (R) from CA has already passed in te HOuse the change in the Endanger Species Act which would require protection only when species is almost extinct... Yes I am not kidding!!!
Luckily numbers of moderate Republicans in Senate + Democrats are already ready to vote against this bill if brought to the floor, not to mentioned lack of 60 votes.

During budget negotiations Pombo put proposal to sell 10-15 national Parks for Development. It failed.
As we can see there are quite a few blind, sick people besides W.
We definitely need some checks in congress. May be in the House during Fall 2006 mid-term election?
