In January 2008 Barack Obama told the San Francisco Chronicle:

“Under my plan of a cap and trade system electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket. Businesses would have to retrofit their operations. That will cost money. They will pass that cost onto consumers.”

He promised that his plan would cause electricity rates to skyrocket.

...

Barack Obama’s EPA just killed off another 3,900 energy jobs in Texas.

...

Obama’s new EPA regulations will cost the coal industry $180 billion and force electricity rates to skyrocket.

While a few sources have called this a coal plant, it was actually to be Petroleum Coke fueled plant. That is the solid leftovers from crude oil after all the available liquid/gas fuels have been removed from it.

There is little chance to stop communists King Obama since the dictator can command his communists Administration to just carry out this dictator's wishes. Forget the people, Senate, and House. America is finished and the only hope is the Senate turn in 2014 and that looks very bleak since the GOP is useless. Only the Tea Party might caused the Senate upset.

From Corpus Christi Caller-Times:

Although financial conditions played a role in the decision, Freysinger said the project was the victim of an insurmountable regulatory framework erected by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, which has in recent years enacted stiffer carbon-based fuel permitting requirements while tightening standards on petroleum coke emissions.

“The (Las Brisas Energy Center) is a victim of EPA’s concerted effort to stifle solid-fuel energy facilities in the U.S., including EPA’s carbon-permitting requirements and EPA’s New Source Performance Standards for new power plants,” he said. “These costly rules exceeded the bounds of EPA authority, incur tremendous costs, and produce no real benefits related to climate change.”
