We have learned from the Marxist/Progressive regimes in the past, they hold the United States Constitution in total disdain. Rule of law as opposed to arbitrary rule impedes there effort to bring about the fundamental transformation their guru, Karl Marx outlined and the current head of the regime and Marxist/Progressive party promised in 2008.
We have seen these Marxist/Progressive elements rule by executive order when another of the co-equal branches of government disagreed with them. Wilson and Franklin Roosevelt were masters of the tactic. Obama has mastered the tactic and now gone beyond by not even using the executive order but by using a simple declaration. Obama changed the health care takeover bill he pushed by simply declaring parts of the the law passed by congress and signed by him would be delayed by making a statement. This is way beyond any power given in the Constitution. This is the act of a dictator. The sad part is, nobody in his party questioned it.
Now we have the EPA writing regulations, enforcing regulations, and acting as prosecutor, judge and jury. This is all under the executive branch and not subject to any review by the co-equal branch of government, the congress. The latest arbitrary rulings will have drastic consequences on the economy of the United States and the lives of citizens in all coal producing states as well as those using coal for energy; this includes almost all citizens.
Joe Manchin, Senator from West Virginia said the proposed rule, which would impose strict pollution standards requiring future coal-burning plants to capture and store about 40 percent their carbon emissions, holds the coal industry to “impossible standards.” To meet the rule’s emissions limits, future coal plants would have to install expensive technology to capture and store their carbon dioxide. And that technology has not yet been adopted on a large scale. “Never before has the federal government forced an industry to do something that is technologically impossible,” Manchin said.
Even if you believe restrictions should be placed on the coal industry, you should be terrified by the manner in which the regime is ignoring the Constitution and acting as a dictator in a totalitarian state. That is the end goal of Obama, head of the regime and Marxist/Progressive party and he believes he is dictator more and more every day.
