Senator Pat Toomey Speaks Out Against Regulation Of Coal Emissions

Opposing The "War on Coal"
Senator Pat Toomey
I was very disappointed this week to learn that - due to the Obama administration's policies - the company FirstEnergy is deactivating coal-fired power plants in Fayette and Washington counties and leaving hundreds out of work. These unemployed Pennsylvanians are unfortunate casualties in President Obama's ‘war on coal,' which I will continue to fight against in the Senate.   
Coal is a domestically sourced, low-cost form of energy which helps sustain jobs for Pennsylvania and beyond. Over the decades, coal-fired plants also have gone to impressive lengths to reduce emissions. Nevertheless, the Obama administration continues to implement policies that will make energy more expensive for hard-working Pennsylvanians while destroying good, family-sustaining jobs.     
It is ironic that this announcement comes just two weeks after the President's ‘war on coal' remarks which were a rehash of the same old bad ideas we have heard for four and a half years. From making coal-fired electricity prohibitively expensive; to forcing taxpayers to subsidize inefficient energy; to burning more corn in gas tanks, the President continues to advocate policies that raise prices for consumers and eliminate jobs.

There is no war on coal, the Natural gas you're subsidizing is taking it's damn place. How can you be so ignorant of the impacts of your own policy positions.

Scrubbing MERCURY from coal (Toxic in small amounts to humans) is NOT a war on coal. Go pass that gas somewhere else ya tea bagger. You morons said the same thing when it was mandated to scrub sulphur emissions from you remember acid rain?

My God Toomey, do you honestly think we're ALL as ignorant as you?

Same old same old. Deregulate and to hell with the consequences.

The Republican party is the single biggest threat to this nation.

Even worse than the incompetent Democrats.

I want a new option next election. You lot are absolutely insane.

If only we had a huge, burning orb in the sky that would give us energy, free, forever. God must have wanted us to extract minerals from deep inside the earth, disrupting the layers that hold the crust together, fouling the water and the air and sickening the flora and fauna. Pass the sunscreen so its energy isn't absorbed into my skin, please?
