UPDATE 11/17/2015: The Senate voted 52-46 to block Obama's EPA plan to make electricity bills "necessarily skyrocket." Just three Democrats voted to stop Obama (Donnelly, Heitkamp, Manchin) and three Republicans shamefully voted not to (Ayotte, Collins, Kirk).
The American people rejected cap-and-trade (President Obama’s plan to make electricity prices “necessarily skyrocket” and “bankrupt coal”) in one of the biggest landslide elections in history in 2010. The day after that election, Obama said: “Cap and trade was just one way of skinning the cat; it was not the only way. It was a means, not an end.”
Since then, Obama has worked overtime to act as if the cap-and-trade bill passed and to twist decades-old laws in order to bankrupt coal and drive up the price of electricity. That effort was again rejected in the 2014 landslide.
Now the EPA has released their outrageous so-called "Clean Power Plan," which coerces states to adopt the same emissions targets from the failed and rejected cap-and-trade bill. Obama's own liberal Harvard law professor, Lawrence Tribe, called it "burning the Constitution."
Take action now to urge the House AND Senate to stand up to Obama and to Stop the War on Coal!
