Now that the election is over and President Obama has won re-election, I have a challenge for our beloved Democrats.
Since Tomblin, Rahall, and Manchin also won re-election, I would ask that you (Democrats) pay attention to what Tomblin, Rahall, and Manchin actually do during this next term.
Don’t listen to what they tell you, instead pay attention to their actions, votes and who they align themselves with.
I personally feel we are about to encounter the full wrath of the EPA and the White House for our stance on coal.
Let’s just see how Rahall, Manchin and Tomblin stand when it happens. Coal will be destroyed. You can bank on it.
When you are all out of a job and wondering what happened just ask yourselves who really cares about the worker then?
I have been told all my life that Democrats are for the working man. We are about to witness that myth being dismantled firsthand.
By the way, what happens when all the coal severance money dries up from no coal industry?
Your property taxes will literally skyrocket because that is the only means of revenue the state government will have left to tap.
