    For all those Libs that still believe Obama is for the "little guy":doubt: As his policies kill jobs and drive up the cost of energy.

    Let's see: Increased energy prices which will hit the poor the hardest, lots of people losing jobs, all based on "science" with no actual basis in science.

    There really can be no defense of this decision. Obama simply doesn't give a damn about people.

    Clips from the article:


    ”The [FERC] commission’s staff has preliminarily estimated that up to 81 gigawatts of existing generation are ‘likely’ or ‘very likely’ to be retired as a consequence of new EPA rules. That’s nearly 8 percent of our installed capacity for electric generation and a retirement at that scale could have drastic consequences for many parts of our country.”


    ...bigger non-energy companies are moving operations overseas because the Obama administration regulations, especially EPA ones, make it cost too much for them to operate in the United States. “Why do you think Alcoa, which makes aluminum, of which a huge input cost is energy, why do you think they’re building in Saudi Arabia? Dow Chemical, the same thing?”

    IF these added costs were allowed to be immediately passed along to consumers. there would be little to no objection from power generators. BUT there would be plenty of objection from VOTERS.

    Off course libs don't care if they are killing jobs, hurting our ability to do business here in this country, as long as it advances their big government agenda, that’s all that matters to them. When we have rolling blackouts because we can't produce enough energy. there will be a cry for government to help.... More crises more government.....

    IMO, coal-fired plants should have had their shit together long ago.

    The bitch about it is this- you either require the point source to pony up, or you relegate the burden to the end consumer.

    The former gets votes, the latter turns away votes.

    Consumers demand the cheap and clean, Washington delivers the down and dirty.
    And it ain't purdy.

    I think you should ponder this statement for a few minutes;

    IF these added costs were allowed to be immediately passed along to consumers.
