. . . . . implementing Obama’s proposed regulation on existing coal plants would destroy more than 500,000 jobs, slash the income of a typical family of four more than $1,400 a year, and increase electricity prices at least 20 percent. Price spikes could be much higher in states that depend heavily on coal-fired power plants . . . . . .

Bypassing Congress . . . . . . Obama intends to fight his War on Coal by issuing a Presidential Memorandum to the EPA to issue regulations.

Any of you specifically remember how during the 2012 Presidential Campaign Obama denied he had such plans as this? Even stating to Ohio residents that he (Obama) was a greater friend to coal states (like Ohio) than Mitt Romney?

In summary, most Americans will see their electric bills increase by over $100 monthly should Obama's plan be implemented as stated.

I was up in an area called Big Creek 2 weeks ago on a Christian Mission trip. It's absolutely astounding as to what this government's policies against energy have done to the communities of Eastern Kentucky. Entire counties are out of work up there. Coal mining towns are dying off everywhere you look. Illegal drugs and government handouts are the #1 and # 2 sources of income up there. No kidding. Them's the cold hard facts. What our government is doing to the working man is criminal.

There's a master plan afoot by our government to bring what's left of the american people to their knees. And we're there and most of us don't even know it.

In January 2008, when Barack Obama was trying to put some distance between himself and other Democrats seeking the party's nomination, he touted his green policies. In particular, he talked about his intentions to put regulations in place that would shut down coal plants around the country.

Speaking in San Francisco, candidate Obama said: "If somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can, it's just that it will bankrupt them."

And, just wait till about 20 million illegals get free citizenship, and start draining the already collapsing job market, and welfare system.

I had lunch with a guy that works for the rail road today. He said coal acounts for close to 30% of their industry revenue. He talked about his job as well as thousands of others being in jeopardy thanks to Obama's war on coal.

"Obama resumes his war on coal...." along with the war on the rest of the country.

China, Russia and India are all using their coal WITH VERY FEW regulations.

For every step Obama takes toward "green" the other countries take 5 steps backward. But Obama wants the United States to pay for it all. NOBODY is doing anything to stop those other countries from using as much coal as they want.
