Coal is the cheapest form of electricity there is which keeps Kentucky Utility rates some of the lowest in the Nation. Banning coal fired Power Plants only punishes the poor, which Kentucky has many, for a feel good bunch who profess to know what is the best for everyone else. Carbon based Utilities are the cheapest and safest form of energy production. Solar and Wind are not on demand sources for energy and cause hugh problems in balancing the power grid and are not economically viable without our tax dollars subsidizing them. Nuclear Power is more expensive than Coal or Natural Gas not to mention we have no known way to safely dispose of the Nuclear waste. You want to blame Mitch for not bringing alternative forms of economic opportunity to Kentucky, what is it you think he should/could have done to diversify the local economy. NAFTA and the highest taxes on business in the world have driven all the jobs to Mexico and overseas so that we now have over 1/3 of the population on Welfare. Obama ran on revising the Tax Code but that turned out to be just another one of his lies like if you like you Health Insurance you can keep your Health Insurance, If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor. He has not even suggest a revision for the tax code for business all he has done is push for more costly regulation and imposing more taxes on businesses. Lowering Taxes is a Republican platform and Harry Reid has refused to bring any bills addressing them to the floor of the Senate or for that matter any of the jobs bills passed by the House of Representatives. There are currently over 350 bills passed by the Republican House of Representative to help this country but Obama has Harry Reid blocking them from even coming up for a vote. The Democrat party use to be the party of the working man/farmer but it has been corrupted by the Liberals who use it against real Americans. Obama has opened the flood gates on the southern border of this country and is trying his best to overrun this country with the third world problems of South America. His foreign policy is nonexistent by his own admission. His failure to act on so many of the problems of this country and only attend fund raiser after fund raiser and take him and his family on one luxury vacation after another speaks louder than the words that come out of his mouth. He has attacked the foundations that made this country great with his Fundamental Transformation of American he is so proud of. Mitch McConnell is one of the few who has stood up against these attacks including Obama Care, the EPA, NLRB recess appointment, stacking the DC District Court with Obama flunkies etc. Let's face it the Democrat party of old is now the Republican Party and the new Democrat party is the welfare party who want to overrun this country with illegal aliens to take what few jobs that are left.

Then why aren't you supporting him if that is true? Do you know what candidate got a RECORD AMOUNT OF CAMPAIGN DOLLARS from Wall Street? Check it out. Your democrat messiah knows the answer. Do you know how many ex Wall street people have been appointed by Obama to work in his administration? Check out Lew. He made a huge HUGE amount of money when he was employed on Wall Street betting that people wouldn't be able to make their mortgage payments. Then he took a huge HUGE bonus from Obama's bailout to his company and then joined Obama in DC. All the while these things are taking place Obama and the democrats want you to believe that they are against Wall Street and they are the cause of our economic problems. Fooled you, huh? Don't feel bad. There are plenty more just like you.
George W Bush did TARP Stupid.

@Use Your Brain Who accused me of not having any facts. Everything that I previously stated about Mormonism is a fact as well attested by every scholarly work on the subject. What I've said about Mormonism deviates from them in no way.

McConnell has voted against raising minimum wage 26 times. Said last week he does not know where he would be without the Koch brothers. If Kentuckians still vote for him they are dumber than any state besides Florida. Please do not be a kochsucker like McConnell. He is useless, has dementia,and a basic fool who wants to give America to the koches.

You say, "McConnell hasn't caused our economy to be in the toilet."? Poppycock!!! While it wasn't his doing alone he was part of the republican spending euphoria under W Bush that left the country on the abyss of an economic meltdown. If you compare the economy of today with the economy when W walked from the White House it is one hellava lot better. The most amazing thing about this entire debate is the you think republicans should control the economy again. That is the definition of insanity, "doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result".
There are a record number of Americans on food stamps after SIX years of Obama's policies. There are a record number of Americans living at or below the poverty level after SIX years of Obama's policies. The workforce participation rate is as low as it was in the 1970's after SIX years of Obama's policies. Our country is more divided today than it has been in years and years after just SIX years of Obama's policies. Millions and millions and millions of Americans have thrown their arms up in the air and have lost hope of ever finding a job after SIX years of Obama's policies as you people brag about the democrats job creation skills. Millions and millions of Americans are under-employed after SIX years of Obama's policies. Unemployment in the Black communities has remained a steady 15% during Obama's SIX year reign. Brian Terry's family has never received justice concerning their loved ones murder. Obama declared Executive Privilege so he never has to answer for or talk about the death of Brian Terry. William Long's family has never seen justice for their sons "drive-by" murder. Quinton Ezeagwula lives with his wounds and will never receive justice under this administration. No one was held responsible or answered for the Drone killing of an American teenager. 4 Americans waited for help but were left behind in Benghazi. The American people were lied to immediately following the murders in Benghazi by terrorists. That includes the victims families who are still asking for the truth. Several weeks after it was made clear that there were no protests and the terrorists did not kill because of a youtube video...Obama gave a speech at the UN saying the deaths were because of a youtube video. The Obama administration submitted false dollar amounts to the CBO concerning Obamacare. The democrats lied, cheated, deceived, made shady deals and bullied their own party members to ensure Obamacare was voted into law. We were assured time and time again by Obama and the democrats that Obamacare was not a tax. The Supreme court ruled that Obamacare was indeed a tax. The largest tax legislation ever forced on the American people. A job stimulus bill that created more debt than it created jobs. Shovel-ready jobs that were never shovel-ready. A claim that Obama cut our deficit in half after five years in office but decided it was best not to release info that he also tripled that deficit in his five years of policies. Obama's delay and confusion about foreign policies has put our country into a horrifying position. Former democrat Jimmy Carter being the headline speaker in Detroit for a fundraiser for Hamas. Hamas has been declared a terrorist organization by the United States. Has Obama sent Holder to Detroit to handle Jimmy Carter breaking the law the same as he sent Holder to Missouri to investigate a local matter of a White cop shooting a Black unarmed teen who just committed a crime at a food mart/gas station and also beat the cop? Just which of those Obama policies and priorities do you think has made our country better?

On and on and on and on and on. Are Americans better off since Obama became president? Not even close, spose, not even close to being better off!

Mercury poisoning causes mental disturbances, in unborn babies the developing nervous system, making the child less able to think and learn. Mercury in air eventually settles into water or onto land and washed into water. Mercury exposure can harm brain, heart, kidney, lungs and Immune system, causes memory loss, abnormal behavior, the number 1 source of Methlymercury in air is coal burning plants.

And the democrats are told what to do and how to do it and when to do it by supporters like Soros, the communist, and Bill Ayers, a terrorist. I'll take my chances with the Kock Brothers who actually have a reason to brag about the jobs they have created for citizens all across America.

A lot of those minimum wage workers have expressed that they don't want the minimum wage raised if it means they will lose their food stamps and their welfare check or if their government-subsidized rent will increase. Funny how Obama and the democrats didn't start caring about minimum wage workers until midterm election time is rolling around and they are in deep shit with the voters.

Where was the democrats deep concern for the minimum wage workers in the last 6 years on Obama's watch?
democrats answer...Huh? Whut? I dunt understood the kwestion you are assking me. lol

Electricity allows for cars to run and lights to be turned on and has prevented trillions of people from freaazing to death. 1 source of electricity is coal burning plants.
