Fail Alert: With Unemployment at 9.1% Obama Promises to Stimulate Economy With Job-Killing Green Projects
Once a die-hard socialist… Always a die-hard socialist.
In his Weekly Address this week Barack Obama continued to push his job-killing green energy agenda.
From his Weekly Address:
We know that more and more jobs are being created in the clean energy sector, so we’re investing in wind power, solar power, and biofuels that will make us less dependent on foreign oil and clean up our planet for our children. These are steps we know will make a difference in people’s lives – not just twenty years from now, or ten years from now, but now, and in the months to come.
In the end, the folks I hear from in letters or meet when I travel across the country – they aren’t asking for much. They’re just looking for a job that covers their bills. They’re just looking for a little financial security. They want to know that if they work hard and live within their means, everything will be all right. They’ll be able to get ahead, and give their kids a better life. That’s the dream each of us has for ourselves and our families. And so long as I have the privilege of serving as President, I’ll keep fighting to put that dream within reach for all Americans. Have a great weekend, everybody.
Let’s face it, Obama is a committed radical who puts leftist doctrine before reality.
His plan will kill even more jobs.
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.
In fact, for every green job created by the Obama EPA, four jobs are lost in the economy. But Obama doesn’t care. He promised that his plan would cause electricity rates to skyrocket before he moved into office and he meant it… The economy be damned.
