Industry groups and a few lawmakers from states that have relied on coal-based energy have vowed to challenge the new requirements in the courts and through Congress.

This past Friday, the Republican-led House moved to codify this ignorance into law when it passed legislation to streamline environmental analysis and permit decisions conducted by the federal government.
In other words, he wants to do the opposite of President Obama.
Rather than offend the masses of voters by attacking those two very popular programs, Bush spoke about African-American voters – most of whose ancestors, let us not forget, were brought here to help build this country with free labor – as if they’re only looking for free handouts. “This must change.
