Obama uses his EPA to implement his failed “Cap & Trade Plan” - and today the EPA announces “New Rules” that will immediately skyrocket power rates – just as Obama said he would do.
In yet another act of tyranny, the EPA, under orderes from Obama – has announced today that it will impose new ‘emission standards’ or MATS on the power and coal industry.
WASHINGTON — After a two-month delay, the Obama administration on Wednesday unveiled new rules for coal-fired power plants that mean costly investments passed on to consumers, but also health benefits.
A “significant Clean Air Act announcement” was set for 2 p.m. ET by the Environmental Protection Agency. Both environmentalists and industry were gearing up for the final say on rules covering mercury and other toxic emissions from power plants fueled by coal.
The Obama administration on Wednesday unveiled the first-ever standards to slash mercury emissions from coal-fired plants, a move aimed at protecting public health that critics say will kill jobs as plants shut down.
While Obama’s vaunted Marxist plan to destroy the power industry in the United States in his Cap & Trade plan went nowhere in the Congress, Obama did not let the legislative defeat stop his plan to dismantle and destroy the prosperity and self sufficiency of the United States.
He is implementing it by fiat, using the Alphabet Agencies to enact his decrees.
The Marxists are telling us that this effort is to ‘cut down on mercury and arsenic poisoning’ emitted from coal-fired power plants.
This is CRAP.
Do you honestly think for a SECOND this regime gives a rat’s arse about mercury poisoning? Why did they then outlaw the incandescent light bulb and demand all Americans use “Green energy” MERCURY-FILLED fluorescent bulbs??? You remember them, the ones that require a Hazmat team to clean up should your bulb break.
Lest anyone attempt to deflect the BLAME for your soon-coming skyrocketing electric bill, this statement from the EPA’s ruling says plainly:
the standards are accompanied by a Presidential Memorandum that directs EPA to use tools provided in the Clean Air Act to implement the Mercury and Air Toxics Standards
The EPA admits, these orders came on down from Obama.
This is simply the effort to take America down, and prostrate us before the world exactly as Obama and the Marxist Left seek to do.
This is why I laugh at those who say Obama is just clueless – he is NOT clueless or stupid, he is – coldly calculating and purposeful. Bankrupting the coal industry is EXACTLY what he said he was going to do. Making your electricity rates SKYROCKET is exactly what he said he would do under his Cap and Trade plan. But since his plan failed in the Congress, he is simply imposing it’s designed-provisions through the Alphabet agencies that do his bidding.
Here, recall what he said he would do in 2009:
Get the picture of what this plan is intended to do?
Obama will of course go and blame his political opponents for the pain and misery he is causing – but that too – is for the ultimate purpose he seeks: mass violence and death as he tears this nation down before the rest of the world, by design.
