If you think Obama is ending his war on coal and energy, think again. It won’t end until we can elect a new president in 2016. On Monday, the administration announced a mandate by cutting 30 percent in emissions from power plants by 2030. There have been claims that this would result in destroying up to 250,000 jobs a year, just one of many draconian policies Obama has implemented in destroying this country.
While Obama makes his speeches, he also tends to say that the GOP is always playing partisan games and not being open to negotiating. However, Obama would refuse to admit that there are also Democrats who admit this policy is so awful, that they oppose it as well. Democrat Representative Nick Rahall of West Virginia is pursuing legislation to put a stop to Obama’s mandate. He says “We will introduce bipartisan legislation that will prevent these disastrous new rules from wreaking havoc on our economy in West Virginia.” However, Obama will still go on to say there is no bipartisan effort and do whatever it takes to push his agenda. Allison Grimes, Mitch McConnell’s opponent for Kentucky Senate, also spoke out against the mandate.
This mandate is nothing new. It is all done, in the name of man-made climate change, and if you don’t support Obama and the radical environmentalists, they will always play the guilt tactic on you, such as ‘you want people to suffer’ or ‘you want to stop pollution.’ This has nothing to do with pollution or the environment. It is always used as an excuse, but it is all about more government control. Obama hates coal and energy, even knowing that it creates so many jobs and economic prosperity. North Dakota is living proof of it, with many jobs still being created, high paying salaries, and an unemployment rate below 3 percent. This definitely was not the ‘hope and change’ Obama supports.
What is also troubling is Obama hates coal and oil, but then turns around and wants to take all the credit for any oil or that is being produced. Once again, it needs to be pointed out that drilling for oil has been prosperous on private land, not federal land. Plus, the facts are indisputable. Tremendous job creation has been made from coal, oil, and natural gas. Obama can be entitled to his own opinion, but he’s not entitled to his own facts.
