The Wisconsin congressional district represented by Rep. Tom Petri (R) stands to lose nearly 2,000 jobs because of the Obama Administrations War on Coal, but Petri has twice voted to let some of those more controversial and burdensome regulations stand.
A nationwide analysis by the Heritage Foundation concludes that Wisconsin will lose an estimated 11,702 jobs thanks to Obama environmental regulations. The sixth district alone will lose more jobs than any other congressional district in the country the study concludes.
Petri was the only Republican from Wisconsin to vote against suspending the rule. Voting with Petri was the states entire Democrat congressional delegation.
Petris voting record and how it differs from his rhetoric will likely become more important in the weeks to come, as Petri faces a primary challenge from state Sen. Glen Grothman.
