    Using this rule the Obama Administration is in the process of shutting down over 100 coal fired electric generating plants and causing the operating costs of the rest to increase.

    Clean Air Mercury Rule | US EPA

    Now mind you this is an election year so Kind Obama has ask the EPA to wait till NEXT year to actually close the plants and increase 60 percent of the Countries electric bills.

    Here is a feel good piece that white washes the issues associated with the closings and coasts and lost jobs.

    Business Breakdown: New Pollution Rules to Close Coal Plants - Business - GOOD

    The claim that only a handful of plants are effected is simply wrong, in the original article over 60 plants would close and another 70 to 80 would cost to much to upgrade so likely would close. Something like 60 percent of our electricity comes from coal or gas.

    We should build more as the cheaper the energy is=more profit to hire more workers=lower unemployment. Again, Obama isn't very smart...Not that I'm totally against cleaner, but there is a point of going to far!

    That is sufficient cause to show him the door right there.

    This is part of Obama's plan to fundamentally transform the United States. His goal is to destroy free enterprise in the USA. He has previously indicated he wants to shut down the coal industry.

    "Energy costs necessarily need to double'' Care to defend that statement in a debate? What will poor people do, vote for higher gas and electricity prices?

    His plan is to increase electric and gas prices till only the rich can afford them and then the Government would subsidize everyone else. More locked in votes.

    That isn't going to help anyone freezing in the dark because they are dependent on a solar electric power plant.

    Can you imagine this Marxist Macaca cocksucker getting a second term? Imagine the Executive orders he'll put out when he doesn't have to pretend he's an American anymore
