Obama's pen strikes again
Weren't we told that this guy would bring us together?
We heard that President Obama will go after American industry one more time:
"President Barack Obama will impose even steeper cuts on greenhouse gas emissions from U.S. power plants than previously expected, senior administration officials said Sunday, in what the president called the most significant step the U.S. has ever taken to fight global warming.
A year after proposing unprecedented carbon dioxide limits, the Obama administration was poised to finalize the rule at a White House event on Monday.
Obama, in a video posted to Facebook, said the limits were backed up by decades of data and facts showing that without tough action, the world will face more extreme weather and escalating health problems like asthma."
There are several problems here:
1) Aren't you sick and tired of watching a U.S. president govern by decree? The EPA has become a wrecking crew attacking U.S. companies. Where did the president get that authority? Or what about the EPA?
2) What about the impact of all of this on jobs? Are companies in a position to adopt all of these ideas from people who have never run a company or met a payroll?
In 2009, President Obama had 60 votes in the U.S. Senate. In other words, there wasn't a single GOP senator who could have stopped gun control, climate change legislation, or immigration reform.
Nevertheless, he couldn't get his own party to vote up and down on these ideas.
President Obama does not respect the U.S. Constitution or the way we do things. Incredibly, and dangerously, 45% still approve of the job he's doing.
