Awful… McCaskill Votes for Expensive New Coal Regulations But Denies It on Her Website
In case we needed further proof that Claire McCaskill’s rhetoric doesn’t match her record…
This morning, Senator Claire McCaskill (D-MO) voted with her party to implement the EPA’s MACT rule, one of the costliest regulations in U.S. history—and one that will prove especially devastating to coal-dependent states such as Missouri.
The measure voted on today would have overturned regulations that coal industry groups have said will hurt the economy, close power plant doors and raise electricity costs.
McCaskill voted for the costly new regulations.
Apparently her campaign didn’t get the memo.
Here’s a screen grab from her site’s “Energy” issue page:
It’s bad enough that Claire voted for expensive new regulations that will force Missouri electricity prices to skyrocket… It’s worse that she’s not honest about it.
