Obama's Energy Policies Continue to Crush Kentucky

Democrat President Barack Obama's energy policies continue to have a negative impact on Kentucky, as coal producer James River announced it'll be laying off 525 full-time workers as a result of faltering coal markets.

According to data compiled by the Kentucky Energy and Environment Cabinet, eastern Kentucky lost approximately 4,000 mining jobs in 2012.

Whether or not these mines will ever be restarted will be based upon market demand, said James River Coal.

Republican Mitch McConnell, the Senate Minority Leader, said in a written statement, "The President is leading a war on coal and what that really means for Kentucky families is a war on jobs."

Kentucky Secretary of State, Alison Lundergan Grimes, who is one of Obama's Democrats, attempted to distance herself from the policies of the president, calling his regulatory policies "overreaching," isn't believable, as she would have switched parties or run as an independent if she really felt that strongly about it.

Grimes and other Democrats need to be voted out of office in order to be sent a clear message that the people of Kentucky aren't going to embrace the radical, liberal, progressive agenda of Barack Obama, which doesn't represent the values of the people of Kentucky.
