Clinton Embraces Obama’s Energy Regulations That Will Cost Jobs, Hike Electricity Rates
This weekend, President Obama released details about a new set of regulations that will cost Americans jobs and hike electricity rates.
The Associated Press’s “winners and losers” list labeled “your power bill” as a loser as a result of these new burdensome regulations:
The savings come from increased use of wind, power and hydro plants, which operate at a cost of close to zero after they’re installed. But acquiring and constructing renewable power sources is still very costly, making it less cost effective in many circumstances.
In a statement Sunday, Clinton called the plan “a significant step forward in meeting the urgent threat of climate change.”
Clinton was shouted down by a group of environmentalists in a recent New Hampshire town hall for failing to “take leadership on climate change.” As a politician who will say or do anything to win, Clinton is now trying to adopt a platform to appease her environmentalist critics.
Clinton is sticking to her strategy of embracing Obama’s policies (because she doesn’t have any of her own) in an effort to serve as a third term for President Obama. Brilliant strategy, considering 53% of the country disapproves of Obama’s handling of the economy.
