The War On Coal Has Only Just Begun

Is there a better reason to get everyone to the polls tomorrow?
November surprise: EPA planning major post-election anti-coal regulation
Conn Carroll, Washington Examiner

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. [link]
Obama's EPA is on a rampage.  Its target is the coalfields of Southwest Virginia.  And everyone who tries to eke out a living there.

We have the chance to stop it.  To kill it.

But you're going to have to get off your dead ass and vote.  No excuses.
