Audio Unearthed Obama tells San Francisco he will bankrupt the coal industry

I know this is an old clip, but it is worth being reminded of how devious, malevolent, and angry at American power, our President is.

" If somebody wants to build a coalpowered plant they can, it's just it will bankrupt them."

For once our rulers are keeping their campaign promises:As Promised, Obama Is Destroying Coal Industry

Two new EPA pollution regulations will slam the coal industry so hard that hundreds of thousands of jobs will be lost, and electric rates will skyrocket 11 percent to over 23 percent, according to a new study based on government data.

Overall, the rules aimed at making the air cleaner could cost the coal-fired power plant industry $180 billion, warns a trade group.

"Many of these severe impacts would hit families living in states already facing serious economic challenges," said Steve Miller, president of the American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity. "Because of these impacts, EPA should make major changes to the proposed regulations before they are finalized," he said.

Sure, the EPA is going to put the livelihood of Red Staters in West Virginia ahead of infinitesimally cleaner air for the polar bears. The devastating impact of these regulations is the whole point, as B. Hussein and his halfwit sidekick made obvious.

Voting for these moonbats wasn't just foolish in the extreme; it was an act of economic sabotage. Hopefully there aren't many nihilistic enough to do it again.
