Manchin Signs On To Blocking EPA’s End-Run Of Democracy
You can't talk jobs without talking energy. Just as Obama and the Democrats ignored voters after Scott Brown won the Massachusetts Senate race, post-November, Obama is now committed to allowing the EPA to implement job-killing regulations that will have far-reaching negative implications for job creation in America for years to come.
It's good to see such bi-partisan support (details at link) for the effort to stop the EPA from their continuing battle against the private sector by robbing it of lower cost energy. Now, we have to keep the pressure on the Senate.
Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), a vocal critic of the Environmental Protection Agency, has signed on as a co-sponsor of Republican legislation to permanently block the agency's climate rules.
The bill has a good chance of passing the House, but will face major hurdles in the Senate.
