Obama On Coal: We'll Bankrupt You

Sen. Barack Obama on an issue that is vital to the economic future of Kentucky and the energy independence of America: coal.

So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can; it’s just that it will bankrupt them because they’re going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that’s being emitted.

That will also generate billions of dollars that we can invest in solar, wind, biodiesel and other alternative energy approaches.

The only thing I’ve said with respect to coal, I haven’t been some coal booster. What I have said is that for us to take coal off the table as a ideological matter as opposed to saying if technology allows us to use coal in a clean way, we should pursue it.

So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can.

It’s just that it will bankrupt them.

Obama has never been able to hypnotize Kentuckians. Pennsylvanians, Virginians and West Virginians and Ohioans need to listen up. He wants to bankrupt an entire industry.

Well what do the left-wing illuminati feel the oil companies are doing to us the consumers? We're going bankrupt trying to fill our gas tanks.
