In addition, McConnell requested that the federal government allow coal-fired power plants to increase the amount of carbon pollution they emit into the nation’s air supply. Asthmatics and other people with respiratory ailments are currently permitted to tap the nation’s air supply at no cost. Currently.
The AP reports that McConnell’s letter said that Trump, “inspired the American people with your vision of less regulation, free and fair competition, and enhanced job opportunities.” However, as The Fucking News re-reported back in November, just one week after Trump’s election, McConnell was asked whether the Republican agenda would restore coal jobs and said, ” that’s hard to tell because this is a private sector activity.”
In other words, letting coal millionaires shit their coal shit into our lungs won’t bring back jobs, it’ll just mean the coal millionaires have to spend less money keeping their coal shit out of our lungs.
