Obama Ramps Up The War On Coal: Obama's EPA Finalizing New Anti-Coal Regulations

By Susan Duclos

No wonder Barack Obama has been so secretive about his second term agenda if he were to win reelection, it isn't just more of the same, it is worse.

Via Washington Examiner: November Surprise

President Obama’s Environmental Protection Agency has devoted an unprecedented number of bureaucrats to finalizing new anti-coal regulations that are set to be released at the end of November, according to a source inside the EPA.

More than 50 EPA staff are now crashing to finish greenhouse gas emission standards that would essentially ban all construction of new coal-fired power plants. Never before have so many EPA resources been devoted to a single regulation. The independent and non-partisan Manhattan Institute estimates that the EPA’s greenhouse gas coal regulation will cost the U.S. economy $700 billion.
The rush is a major sign of panic by environmentalists inside the Obama administration. If Obama wins, the EPA would have another four full years to implement their anti-fossil fuel agenda. But if Romney wins, regulators will have a very narrow window to enact a select few costly regulations that would then be very hard for a President Romney to undo.

 If Mitt Romney wins the presidential election in two days, he will have to begin a process to undo the damage Obama's team is setting up to cause.

Romney spokesman Ryan Williams responds to the news:

President Obama won’t tell the voters of the Virginia, Ohio, and Pennsylvania the truth about his plans to shut down the coal industry. Even after he loses on Tuesday, it appears that the President will still try to continue his efforts to kill their jobs and drive up their energy prices. Mitt Romney is committed to reversing the damage caused by the Obama Administration’s disastrous liberal agenda as soon as he takes office.

Coal families, those with members working in any part of the coal industry, need to know what casting a vote for Obama will do to their livelihoods.

Pass it around, make sure they are clear on what an Obama second term will do to their families.
