Want infrastructure improvement and middle class jobs, Mr. Obama? Approve the Keystone XL pipeline « Hot Air: "Then there is his all but declared “war on coal”, a product critical to our energy infrastructure. It begins to become clear that ideology is much more important to the President than middle class jobs. If Mr. Obama has his way, many thousands of middle class jobs will be lost in the coal mines and coal fired electrical plants as those plants are regulated out of existence. Those who understand economics realize the ripple effect those sorts of job losses would have on communities all across the country. The obvious other consequences of such a policy, such as brownouts and blackouts, don’t seem to be of a particular concern to this president either. It is clear that while he has the executive power to do it, he plans to use agencies such as the EPA to do his ideological dirty work through regulation. Congressional oversight is not welcome. And watch for the big push for climate change legislation coming soon. This is where the left intends to literally create tax revenue from thin air by trying to scare Americans to death."
