Mean Joe Green #70: Big Coal Claims Climate Bill Unfair

Originally posted on on 8/7/09

10 Democratic Representatives from coal-dependent states sent a letter to Obama sharing that they will not support the Waxman-Markey climate and energy bill.

Sens. Sherrod Brown (Ohio), Debbie Stabenow (Mich.), Carl Levin (Mich.), Robert Casey (Penn.), Arlen Specter (Penn.), Robert Byrd (W.Va.), Jay Rockefeller (W.Va.), Evan Bayh (Ind.), Russell Feingold (Wis.), and Al Franken (Minn.) signed the letter saying a climate bill should “include provisions to maintain a level playing field for American manufacturing.”

A LEVEL PLAYING FIELD?!?!? Big Coal is complaining (to their senators apparently) that they are concerned about a level playing field. That is HILARIOUS!
