If it passes the House, don't 'blame it on Obama'. It will have gotten support from enough Republicans to be an issue for America.

Mostly due to the shift in the senior vote in the southern states against the massive health and 'quality of life' costs of 'cheap coal'. They no longer want to live in squalor with the prevalence of serious disease such as miners lung, cancer, etc.

With most energy companies switching to low sulfur Western coal, the mining industry has lost a LOT of it's prior clout. The number of bills to try to curb the 'mountain top removal' method of mining shows just how unpopular W.Va coal mining has become. They wouldn't fight it at all before. Now they are feeling the loss of clean water and 'readjusting' their priorities.
