Sen. Rockefeller Throws Coal Mining Jobs Under the Progressive Bus

From by Tom Borelli:

Senator Jay Rockefeller (D-WV) epitomizes the progressive elite in Washington, D.C. who threatens our liberty and undermines our Republic.

Tragically for West Virginia, Rockefeller’s liberal underpinning was the driving force behind his vote against Senator James Inhofe’s (R-OK) resolution to block the EPA’s Utility MACT rule.

With his rich progressive history and elite background it’s not surprising that Rockefeller abandoned his coal dependent state during its greatest time of need.
