From Their Point of View

Posted by Elizabeth Jennings at 12:25 pm, May 06, 2014

Most of the time, we receive a lot of spam in our general mailbox from solicitors. But every so often, we get a heartfelt email from a concerned citizen, showing support of our cause and for the coal industry. I wanted to share some excerpts with you to help those who may not be as aware how much these proposed EPA regulations will affect these communities.

 

“I sign and support coal jobs for many reasons. My husband was a coal miner for 22 years and my father-in-law was a miner for almost 40 years, and a lot of other people I know are miners. Another reason is to help the miners to fight Obama ending coal jobs…. The more we fight, the longer it takes for him to fulfill his agenda. I hate what Obama is doing to OUR country. I love my country and support the hard working people, coal jobs, and most of all Our Troops.”

“Coal mining is all we have to make a living and pay our bills– also food, everyone has to eat, what are we supposed to do? …[We] need coal for lights to stay on and keep warm in the winter. It will kill these states and everyone will be on welfare.”

“My husband and son, both work at a coal plant, along with a lot of good friends here in PA. Why does the government have to get involved and try and take these jobs away from the American people? Also, we have coal heat in our house and garage, which is much warmer than any other resource of heat! Coal has been around for a very long time, keep it that way!”

 

There are many more comments like those above from affected coal miners, truckers, family members and consumers who fear the skyrocketing electricity bills that are headed their way. To protect affordable electricity, use our comment tool before May 9 and send a comment to the EPA at: www.EPAregscostjobs.com.

Please continue sharing your stories with us! We enjoy hearing from you.
