What's To Celebrate about Obama Killing COAL?

Everyday Obama confirms with both his words and his actions that he WANTS the demise of The United States.  We have to confess that we made a huge mistake that will cost us in precious time and precious dollars to fix.  He is ravaging this economy and tilting our government drastically to the left - in other words to less freedom.  Americans are realizing more and more that this is a call to fight for our liberties and our Constitution.  The latest idiotic act by Obama's regime?  Kill Coal. Why?  There is only one answer and it's not the environment.  The reason that more and more people are thinking of is the unthinkable.  We voted into office and anti-American plain and simple.
Enviro-Whack jobs are celebrating the demise of America‘s most abundant energy resource, coal. Because coal has just been given the death sentence by Obama and the EPA just as Obama planned.
“So, if somebody wants to build a coal plant, they can,” said candidate Obama “it’s just that it will bankrupt them, because they are going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that’s being emitted.”
The EPA has issued new proposed rules on carbon emissions that will help Obama keep one campaign promise: Builders of new coal fired power plants won’t be prevented from building coal-fired power plants, they’ll just go bankrupt if they try...
“Proposed emission rules for new power plants unveiled by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on March 27 spell the gradual demise of coal-fired power generation and entrench the current cost advantage for natural gas,” reports Reuters’ John Kemp.
If Obama can’t get the tax portion of the Cap and Tax, I guess he figures he might just as well get the cap portion done. The problem of course is that you and I are going to pay higher electric rates because of it.   
“The agency's proposed rule, signed yesterday, would set a standard well within the capability of modern gas-fired plants but impossible for coal-fired units to meet unless they employ (unproven) carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology.”
Even before this proposed new rule, Obama has been using a variety of stratagems to stop the construction of new coal-fired plants.
“Power developers have scrapped plans for more than 100 coal-fired electricity plants over the past decade,” says a Reuters newswire report, “due to difficulty obtaining construction and pollution permits or because they were simply too expensive.”  READ HERE

52% of the electricity generated in the US is by goal. So in real terms the country runs on coal not oil.

Whoops. I meant coal.
