with the election drawing near, I need to know which candidate for the governor of WV really supports our state's coal industry and is not putting unreasonable restrictions on them, I want a person who really understands the importance of coal to this state. Has any one running shown any interest in building plants and factorys so that the people of WV do not have to leave the state to find work that provide them with benefits such as retirement and health insurance, I don't mean minimum wage jobs, I mean good jobs that pay competetive wages. I hope someone knows the facts and will post them for all of us who are unsure.

In 2009, Tomblin sponsored and passed House Bill 103(also supported by Manchin in WV) the Alternative and Renewable Energy Portfolio Act. The bill requires power generation in West Virginia to decrease from over 97% from traditional coal power plants in 2009 to a maximum of 75% from traditional sources by 2025. This is West Virginia’s version of the federal Cap & Trade bill (Manchin said he would shoot hole through in WV and didn't, now he says he shot a whole through it federally, but it was dead in senate 3 months before he took office). Recently, Tomblin incorrectly said in the Charleston Daily Mail editorial board meeting this bill will not limit the use of coal and natural gas in our state. More recently, Tomblin said in the gubernatorial debate this bill is not a state level version of Cap & Trade. The bill clearly will limit the use of coal and natural gas in our state and it is a state level version of Cap & Trade.

Additionally, the law only allows natural gas to be used for 10% of the 25% overall mandate for alternative and renewable electricity. In essence, even if power companies utilized natural gas for the majority of its power generation, the state of West Virginia would only recognize that it was generating 2.5% of its output using natural gas as an alternative fuel for the purpose of meeting the 25% overall alternative fuels mandate in the West Virginia cap-and-trade law. Our state is experiencing a natural gas boom. We are discovering new deposits every day, and we are using new techniques to pump natural gas more efficiently. Yet, Tomblin sponsored and supported a law that discourages the use of natural gas. If Malony is elected, he will repeal the West Virginia Cap & Trade bill that limits the use of coal and natural gas.

As you know, the Obama Administration’s Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has stalled and is sitting on many coal permits. The West Virginia Department of Environment Protection (DEP) is currently sitting on 800 coal mining permits. The federal government and Tomblin's administration should issue these coal permits so West Virginia can start mining coal again.

Enough said...

Yes. 4 more years of sucking the life out of Americans with his socialist agenda of destroying America and all we have worked for..Plain and simple.

4 bucks a gallon while he spends trillions on failed green energy companies.[of which donate a million each to his campaign before they go bankrupt]

Its been 4 years and obama still isn't qualified to lead a country.

23 countries across the world are rioting in the streets burning American flags but not a word to the public on this from obama.

Now Ill bet your news nor obama has mentioned all the men/TROOPS poisoned in Afghanistan in the last week by the COOK????
NOT ONE WORD FROM OBAMA....

Obama is going to get us nuked with his lack of a foreign policy.

He couldn't lead a boy scout troop much less the military.

To learn more about the obama agenda - watch the movie "Obama's America - 2016" to get an idea of the next 4 years if Obama wins this election.

The movie is out on DVD - readily available for rent via numerous Redbox locations, buy or rent from Amazon or watch instantly from Amazon and other outlets.

Have you lost your wits? No one has answered the question for me, have you forgotten the condition of this country before he took office? Just where were you? Doesn't someone in your family get a monthly check they don't work for and continues to have babies that need health care. The Social Security was spent before Obama came into office! What about the elderly and the health care they need; you need to get the full information before you start running your mouth. I have two healthcare plans that were in place before Obama and neither one completely pays for my needs...I'm tired of our insurances for our homes and lives only picking up a certain amount or dropping you when you become a liability or only paying for the medical care and DOCTORS they want to send You to...WAKE THE HELL UP! OBAMA ALL THE WAY YOU IDIOT!!! Please don't tell me that it's the coal or it's "I can't get a job". There is plenty of work if you really want to get off your high horse and do it!!

And one more thing------I think that Obama has and has had the right Idea---- trying to pay off Some of this DEBT that the Republicans got us into. We were outta debt when Bill Clinton left office, and it is of public record./ So--0-- Do a google on it-- if you dare, that is if Your Republican Coal Operator Bosses will Let You?


Not true Tommy it is a matter of public record and it’s worth noting that the national debt – as in the total public debt owed – increased on Clinton’s watch, and like all recent presidents, Clinton left the country with more than a trillion dollars deeper in debt than when he began — even with the late 1990s economic boom.

According to U.S. Treasury figures at Debt to the Penny, on January 20, 1993, as Bill Clinton took office, the total outstanding public debt was $4.1 trillion. On January 19, 2001, that same figure had increased to $5.7 trillion.
He may have balanced the budget, but a balanced budget simply does not mean OUT OF DEBT. The Socialist Democratic Party really doesn't know the difference. You are proof.
Obama was raised in Indonesia, his mother was a Communist, he was registered as a Muslim in his school, he was hand picked, mentored, and groomed by socialists to hate Capitalism and "Imperiallist" England. One of his first acts as Dictator was to return a bust of Winston Churchill back to England. He turns his back on allies, ignores Terrorist attacks on our embassy, and makes apologies for our country. Obama has ignored both other branches of our government. He has even called sessions to an end only to sign self imposed bills into law. He is a dictator who HATES our country. Those who support him are completely uninformed, stupid, or unable to pay attention. Do some research of your own without jumping on any bandwagons. By all means check my information to confirm its truth.

Clinton balanced the budget by placing a lifetime limit on Welfare. Welfare was a democratic concept to help the poor out of a tough situation. People will take advantages whenever they can. We probably all know people who claim a disability when they are truly able bodied.

I believe in an imposed quarterly mandatory random drug test for the people on welfare, investigation on people who have questionable disabilities. The penalties of fraud should be public service to repay the public debt or hefty jail times clouding execution!. Perhaps our spending would be reduced on social programs. In jail you can still do public service and eat bologna.

Those that refuse, become homeless, childless, and destitute. Perhaps we could put a wall around Cleveland and place them all there without feeding them anymore. We could put them on trains! Maybe have ovens for the poor. We wouldn't have to have foster homes because we could send their kids too.

I think useless politicians could take turns being the mayor of Cleveland! I doubt we would see them in charge of a world of SH^* for very long.

When so called reporters ,spin what a person say,THEY THE LYING SPINNER should go to jail for it.Every body say politics is crooked,but it really is the media. THEY are aloud too lye and call it freedom of speech. I think when a politician say some thing ,THOSE words should stand as is. We Americans are smart enough to understand and decide our feelings about something, and pick out what or who is good for our country. I can see and hear the president say something ,and when the media reports it ,IT is a different story.I am sick of it.HOW about you America?
