Coal-state Republican warns Obama’s climate plan could harm economy
Obama has yet again overstepped his bounds.
Check it out:
Republican Rep. Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia said Friday that President Obama’s plan to impose limits on carbon dioxide emissions would disenfranchise her coal-rich state and result in job losses across the country.
“His regulatory agenda would not only cost West Virginians jobs, but it would deliver a severe blow to our nation’s economy and any hopes of becoming energy independent,” Capito said in a statement.
Capito’s comments were in response to the Labor Department’s monthly jobs report, which showed that the economy gained 195,000 jobs in June and that the unemployment rate remained 7.6 percent last month.
