    Sarah, If Obama gets his way, the coal plants will be shut down and the mines will close so the miners won’t have to worry about getting black lung disease in the future. This is another case of overreach by this administration and these claims should be left at the state level and Workers Compensation. I wonder what Joe Manchin (D-WV) feels about his commander in chief now. West Virginia is very dependent on the coal industry and EPA is basically shutting it down.

    Why this article? Obama has instructed the EPA to essentially destroy the coal industry in the U.S. In fact, in comments on the recent ruling by the EPA on coal plants, one of the heads of a major enviro nut fundraising operation stated flatly “Good. This ruling should effectively outlaw ALL COAL PRODUCTION IN THE UNITED STATES.”

    The focus of this article is the SOP to teh coal industry Obama is trying to hand out via this ruling, in hopes the coal miners union doesn’t oppose his reelection. In other words, this move by the administration is specifically designd to buy off the union heads. This is a bribe. And Omaba is using OUR TAX DOLLARS to bribe the union heads. The Democrat Party is a cancer on this nation.

    Then again, what would one expect from the party of slavery, seccession, Jim Crow, the KKK, lynchings, firebombing little black girls at church on Sunday, Segregation, firehosing black peace marchers, and Bull Connor? I don’t think, given their history, the Democrat Party can be considered a political party, as much as a criminal enterprise, deserving of a RICO investigation.

      Costing the Miners their Jobs too. Why not? Its the Obama way! Increase Unemployment, destroy jobs, and, of course, increase Govt Give A Ways.
      Of course, people should have expected this. OBama did cut is political teeth in the most crooked county in the most crooked state in our nation.

      Mike, The Democrat Party is not the party of Truman or Kennedy anymore. The party should be renamed Progressive Socialist Party as it is in Europe since that is where they want to take this country. Who are you going to get to investigate them? They infest the whole government now. It is interesting that black voters still think the Democrats are wonderful and vote as a block for them in most elections. The Democrats/Progressives are the very ones who have held them back and treat them like children who should be taken care of. The late Robert Byrd – D-WV was big in the KKK in his younger years and he was elected, re-elected until he died. What is that?

    I am the daughter of a deceased coal miner..my father spent 42 years working underground i watched him slowly suffocate to death from black lung and in the end was still denied his benefits…so if you think these benefits are just handed out like some kind of welfare you are clueless. I suggest you speak with someone who suffers from this disease before making such empty headed comments.
