As you’ve seen, Betty Sutton has a troubling history of voting for Nancy Pelosi’s agenda against the best policies for Ohio. The latest? On Friday, Betty Sutton had the chance to stand up for Ohio coal by standing up to the activist EPA with the “Stop the War on Coal Act.” Ohio coal manufacturers have been devastated by the EPA’s attempts to regulate coal to death. But how did Betty Sutton vote? With her Puppet Master Nancy Pelosi – against Ohio & the bipartisan Stop the War on Coal Act. Just like she did on Cap & Trade, Obamacare and more.
Here’s how the Stop the War on Coal Act would help Ohio:
“House Democrats joined Republicans Friday in voting to restrain environmental regulators from hurting the coal industry, battling what mining-state lawmakers call a ‘war on coal’ that just cost another 1,200 jobs.” Fox News
“Republicans say the bill is needed because power companies plan to close some coal-fired plants due to the EPA’s air emissions rules, and because of additional EPA and Interior Department rules affecting coal mining. The GOP says that taken together, the Obama administration’s regulations on the industry amount to a ‘war on coal.’” The Hill
“…Obama’s environmental policies, which are unpopular in energy-producing battleground states such as Virginia and Ohio.” Fox News
“Within the next three to five years, more than 200 coal-fired electric generating units will be shut down across 25 states due to EPA regulations…The most affected states include Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Virginia, and North Carolina, which will see a combined 103 coal-fired generators shut down.” Daily Caller
It’s extremely troubling that yet again, Betty Sutton is proving that she works for Nancy Pelosi, not Ohio.
