Manchin should do more for coal
President Obama has proposed regulations that will be devastating to the coal industry. Sen. Joe Manchin has done nothing. Oh, wait. I forgot. He has posted his opposition to the regulations on his website. I am sure this action has President Obama shaking in his boots. West Virginia deserves action, not words. Here are two actions that Sen. Manchin should take immediately:
* Form a coalition with all senators, Republican and Democrat, from coal-producing states and make a promise that until President Obama rescinds the regulations, the coalition will not support any of Obama's legislation.
* Form a coalition of all Congress members from coal-producing states to propose legislation to defund the EPA to a level where they will not be able to enforce the draconian regulations.
We need action, not speeches.
Obama should be thrown out of office
If our democracy was a parliamentary system we the people would demand and be granted a new presidential election. Obama and his group used fraud, lies and deceit to get re-elected; Bengasi (State Department), Tea Party 501C4 Groups (IRS) Mexican gun deal (Justice Department) plus the refusal to investigate any of the above for numerous and sundry reasons all parochial in nature. The bottom line is we the people have been had!
This administration does not know how to govern. Our economy is in the tank without any fix on the horizon. Our foreign policy is a joke to our allies and a joy to our adversaries. Spending is out of control and has our country headed for an economic disaster. The Affordable Care Act is a train wreck waiting to happen as described by Democratic Sen. Baucus and Obama illegally strikes congressional laws as if he were a king.
What happens when the immigration law is passed but (King) Obama decides he does not like parts of some and decrees he will not enforce things he doesn't want? Obama is trashing our constitution and we as a people have to insist that our elected officials put a stop to these actions and do it now. If they do not have the intestinal fortitude to act in our behalf, they need to be replaced. Come November 2014 we the people need to make sure that both the House and Senate are in opposition to this fraud.
