We're seeing our nation acquiesce to a dictatorship. The Little Marxist Dictator used his pen and his phone to require sweeping reform in the coal-fired industry and push a "green" agenda that is questionable at best, and will be a disaster similar to the ACA at worst. He buys into the politics -- not the science, the politics -- of "global warming." While the new regs are controversial enough, threatening coal industry and power plant industry jobs, the regulations require states to put their own plans into effect or face EPA direct regulation of power plants within the individual states. Governors in Kansas, Kentucky, Virginia and West Virginia have already signed legislation requiring their states' environmental agencies to enact such plans. A bill awaits the governor's signature in Missouri while the legislatures in Louisiana and Ohio are about to take final action on similar bills. Obviously, given some of those are very conservative states, no one sees fit to question this very questionable federal authority. We've apparently thrown in the towel and will allow this clown to become our new king.
