Finally! A Republican Plays Offense
Rand Paul attacks Obama’s job-killing over-regulation and environmental extremism. Are you listening Sharron Angle and Ken Buck?
Paul claimed Obama “cares nothing about Kentucky and cares even less about Kentucky coal.”
“We have a president who is forcing the EPA down our throats,” Paul said. “Even without changing the rules, the EPA is stifling the permit process, and people (are) out of work here because of the president and his policies.
“With all due respect, Mr. President, you’re wrong, and you need to stay out of Kentucky affairs. And you need to keep the EPA out of our affairs because we need jobs, and we’re not going to get jobs with a busybody EPA that’s in our way.”
Make the Democrats defend Obama’s policies. Make the Democrats defend their support of the zealots at the EPA who are killing jobs in the pursuit of an environment as clean as a surgical theater. We are long past the time when such policies need to be questioned.
