EPA Chief: Yes, We're Fighting a 'War on Coal'

Gina McCarthy, the head of the Environmental Protection Agency, was on Bill Maher’s show and clarified the department’s position on coal:
Bill Maher: “Some people called it a war on coal. I hope it is a war on coal. Is it?”
Gina McCarthy: “That’s exactly what this is.”
For some perspective, a Heritage Foundation analysis of anti-coal policies found that they will destroy more than 500,000 jobs, slash the income of a typical family of four more than $1,400 a year, and increase electricity prices at least 20 percent. Price spikes could be much higher in states that depend heavily on coal-fired power plants, especially in the Midwest. Coal still produces 37% of the nation’s electricity.
One wonders if the consequences of winning this ‘war on coal’ are actually understood. We don’t have a replacement for coal that is anywhere near as cost-effective or as efficient, so this will end up being an extremely expensive fight.

Karma, Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.

I know some of the players left over from WWII who are behind all this mess.

This is definitely a repeat.

Gene, look for a friend request.

RE:"

GOD HATES THEIR BEHAVIOR PROBABLY MORE THAN ANY OTHER SIN.

OBAMA IS A QUEER."

I love your comment.  Short, succinct and CORRECT.

PS-"OBAMA IS A QUEER," and that's just his good side--he's also a despot, a murderer, and a devout psychotic.

PPS-I really don't think that there is anything vile and repulsive he hasn't done.  Yet, we allow him to keep his job, keep his pretend citizenship and steal and kill all he wants.  Why is that?

Germany had PLENTY of queers in the government with Hitler.

In fact, There is a part of their army called "The Pink Panthers".

I've read the Bible cover to cover about 70 times

Queers brought down MANY nations.

GOD HATES THEIR BEHAVIOR PROBABLY MORE THAN ANY OTHER SIN.

OBAMA IS A QUEER.

obama's War on Coal is intended to cause electricity rates skyrocket and bankrupt the middle class. We are quite capable of building highly efficient coal burning power plants that are less polluting than cars are. The place for a War on Coal is in china where the air is often the color of sulphur

New York's Green Light Law - Allows Illegal Aliens To Get Driver’s Licenses

New York passed a law to allow illegal immigrants to obtain driver’s licenses earlier this year but it was held up by challenges.

Now it is set to take effect this week.

In typical leftist fashion, supporters claim this is going to somehow make New York’s roads safer for everyone.

Could it really be about voting?

FOX News reports:

Illegal immigrants to be able to get driver’s licenses in NY after legal challenge fails.

Illegal immigrants in New York will able to obtain driver’s licenses starting next week after a last-minute legal challenge was dismissed — making it the 13th state to allow the practice, but one that critics say is unconstitutional.

The Green Light Law, signed by Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo earlier this year, allows anyone to apply for a driver’s license regardless of immigration status and does not require a Social Security number.

Illegal immigrants can use a combination of documents that include a valid passport from a foreign country and a valid foreign driver’s license, as long as it has been expired for less than two years.

“After waiting 18 years to have their right to drive restored, thanks to our legislature, New York can now officially join 12 other states in making driver’s licenses legally available to all residents,” New York Immigration Coalition Executive Director Steve Choi said in a statement this week, arguing that it will make roads safer and the economy stronger.

County clerks in New York have concerns and are sounding an alarm.

CBS News in Albany reports:

County clerks concerned by loopholes in Green Light law.

Undocumented immigrants now have the green light to get a driver’s license in New York…but several county clerks in the Capital Region are concerned.

Saratoga County Clerk Craig Hayner said, “We found that everything we were concerned about as far as fraud and all sorts of other things are in that bill, in that regulation and we’re very concerned.”

Hayner tells CBS6’s Lynsey Smith there are a few loopholes in the Green Light Law.

Loopholes, such as a person coming in to get their license and not having to provide their social security number.

“That could lead to criminals coming from other states, coming in and use that as a way to defraud by just simply saying they don’t have a social security number…and that’s a very dangerous loophole,” replied Hayner.

Does anyone believe this is going to make New York safer or that this is really about driving?

Delusional Democrats
