Obama to kill coal? Swing states erupt

Sen. John McCain’s Republican campaign is looking to capitalize on an interview in which Sen. Barack Obama proposed placing such heavy government fees on coal plants that the industry would either have to clean its emissions or go “bankrupt.”

“If somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can,” Obama said in an interview with the San Francisco Chronicle. “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.”

Publicity over the plan to use “carbon credits” to force the coal industry to either clean up its emissions or get out of business comes on the heels of news that Obama plans to use “price signals” to control America’s energy use, and Republicans have pounced on Obama’s words with an aggressive campaign in the coal-rich battleground states of Ohio and Pennsylvania.  More from WorldNetDaily

  1. Amazing that San Francisco newspaper sat on this story hopefully readers will reject the newspaper. I hear a train coming down the tracks and it says John McCain is going to absolutely steam roll Mr Obama tomorrow. The states affected by this statement are going to reject this socialist and usher in President elect McCain.
