Horrible Leftist & EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson Lashes Out at Utility Companies For Spilling the Beans on Obama’s Job-Killing Policies

Let’s face it.
Obama doesn’t give a damn about creating jobs. He only cares about fundamentally changing America and destroying its wealth.


American Electric Power announced this week that the latest Obama EPA regulations will cost the company at least 600 jobs and over $6 billion which will be pushed on consumers.

Today, Barack Obama’s horrible EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson lashed out at utility companies for revealing the economic destruction of her department’s policies. She then claimed her administration’s policies will prevent premature deaths… What garbage.
The Hill reported:

Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa Jackson struck back Wednesday at American Electric Power, the powerful utility that recently claimed looming EPA rules will prompt a wave of coal plant closures and cost scores of jobs.

“Misleading at best, scare tactics at worst,” Jackson told reporters Wednesday after testifying at a Senate Environment and Public Works Committee hearing on Clean Air Act rules.

AEP — a major coal-burning utility — last week said that EPA rules for air toxics, ozone-forming pollutants and other regulations will prompt closure of five coal-fired power plants and require costly changes at others, create a direct loss of 600 jobs and significantly boost power costs for businesses.

The utility is urging a delay in the compliance periods for the rules.

But Jackson, in her testimony to the committee, cited major benefits from implementation of Clean Air Act rules. She has accused industry lobbyists of peddling in inaccurate “doomsday” scenarios.

She noted, for instance, that new standards for power plant emissions of mercury and other air toxics proposed in March will prevent an estimated 17,000 premature deaths, 120,000 cases of childhood asthma and 850,000 days of missed work due to illness.

These radical leftists are shameless.

    Baloney! The closure of FIVE power plants might very well result in rolling blackouts becoming the norm in some areas.

    Welcome to California. On hot days we can’t power the whole state. Rolling black outs will be normal for you to. On the bright side bussness leaving the state will cut down on the black outs.

    Not shameless just pure, utter, dehydrated rock hard stupid. Notice how they always bleat some nonsense that could never, ever be quantified or measured and then add ‘estimated’ just to CYA. When is someone going to publicly, on CSPAN, finally ask the question “and how do you know this?” So we can all see them simply wither away with a blank look and no answer? Why doesn’t anyone ever ask these idiots to back up their insane claims?

    And shutting down the coal industry totally in the US would save *millions* of lives, maybe even *billions*. And while we all sit around in the dark (because we can’t have campfires either, think of the carbon!), we can all be so happy that we have an EPA protecting our lives. And there will be cake!

    Since when do liberals care about babies’ deaths when they support the killing of more than 1.3 million babies per year?

  • SeniorD

    And WHY should we amazed at this inept regime’s floundering, nihilistic actions? We KNOW M.T. Pants wants to destroy this country, he just needs helpers to get the job done.

    W.T. Sherman said it right – “men in Washington who using their temporary power for selfish ends”

    “Misleading at best, scare tactics at worst,”

    This scrunt calls truth scare tactics as she bleats about saving people from horrid deaths with no stats or basis in reality. Commie!

    What did she expect?

    After being made out to be the bogeyman time and time again, it seems to me that at some point, American business is going to fight back. May there be more of this in the future.

    Much, much more.

    Lisa Jackson is a hack. She is making sh!t up in order to ramrod through what Opie the Kenyan konman wants. She has never held a real job, and her college scholarship at Tulane was paid for by Shell Oil. She is a hack.

    Tell her we gave at the office. Mercury? Those new safe light bulbs that sure sound like they will kill us all.

    When they make up stuff, we need a Joe Wilson or a Trump or even a Supreme to step up and say “You Lie”.

    Destroying our country one day at a time. I hear people on the radio defending O and saying he is doing a great job. Who was the movie star that said the O would go down in history as the greatest president the US has ever had? Bull.

    “But Jackson, in her testimony to the committee, cited major benefits from implementation of Clean Air Act rules”

    The benefits the left is looking for is the destruction of capitalism. This has nothing to do with cleaner air. Global warming was conjured up by the left for the sole purpose of strangling western dominance….while china, Russia are building power plants as fast as they can.

    Hey, Lefties —

    Once you’ve destroyed these jobs and so many others, your revolution might finally be underway. But what a shame: those nasty toxins that’ll kill tens of thousands? They could have helped you get that 25 million. Every little bit helps, you know:

    Say, don’t I recall some interview of Obama’s (sometime during the runup to the 2008 election) where he was outlining his anti-coal policies, and said he didn’t really care if coal companies went bankrupt?


    OK I went and Googled it: Obama’s remarks to the San Francisco Chronicle on January 17, 2008:

    “… So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can.

    It’s just that it will bankrupt them. ..”

    Doncha just wanna bask in the glow of our Presidick’s warm -n- fuzzies toward America and our vital interests?

    “120,000 cases of childhood asthma”

    Yet the NIH states that there is no officially recognized cause for asthma.
