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.

Those wouldn’t be union jobs, would they?

It appears that Arch Coal isn’t a union shop, hence of no concern to the Obama administration.
Just this morning I sold off the remainder of my coal company investments; decided gold/silver a better long term bet.
They are just collateral damage in the war on capitalism.
