    By his reasoning, Obama needs to destroy the middle class in order to save it... --snip-- But this isn't just a job killer. It's a middle class killer.

EPA’s final rule, published in the Federal Register and effective Tuesday, removes coal and oil-fired utility units from the section 112 source list. In pursuing a mercury rule wrought by litigation, the agency concluded in December 2000 that it was “appropriate and necessary” to regulate fossil units under section 112...
