Obama's Flawed Blueprint Continues War on Coal and Harms Economic Growth

President Obama’s “Blueprint for America’s Future,” his strategy for a second term released this week, is a deeply flawed plan that will not boost job creation or economic growth.

Instead of learning from his failed clean energy policy, Obama is doubling down on his command and control energy policy.

Obama’s plan continues his war on coal by renewing the mandate to require utilities to generate 80 percent of electricity from clean energy sources by the year 2035. This commandment will result in higher energy prices which will drive manufacturing jobs overseas.

Obama’s “Blueprint” should be a wake up call to the voters in Ohio and other Midwest states that use coal as a cheap source of power.
