Sullivan: President Obama’s war on coal is also war on the middle class

 

WASHINGTON, D.C.— Senate Environment and Public Works Committee Member Senator Dan Sullivan (R-AK) issued the following statement regarding the Obama Administration’s coal lease moratorium on federal lands:

 

“In 2008, President Obama said that he would propose an energy plan where ‘electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket.’ Unfortunately, he’s kept his word. The president’s unprecedented war on coal is also a war on the middle class. Further, we’ll be sacrificing one of our country’s most effective global economic advantages, as well as one of our greatest potential security assets: access to affordable energy. Today, it’s coal. Tomorrow it could be oil and gas. Once again, this Administration is handing a big win to extreme environmentalists at the expense of hard-working Americans, and our national and economic security.”
