The Daily Caller reports:
An Ohio panel of politicians and industry leaders painted a dire future for the coal industry, with one executive arguing it could be completely destroyed by the Obama administration’s so-called war on coal.
“This represents a coordinated effort to accomplish the total destruction of the United States coal industry,” Robert Murray, president of Murray Energy, told a crowd at Ohio University on Monday.
“President Barack Obama, his appointed cabinet cronies, and his supporters in the U. S. House and Senate, are rapidly accelerating their attacks on our jobs and nothing has been enacted to even slow them down, let alone stop them,” Murray said. “Mr. Obama has totally usurped the legislation branch of our federal government in his radical agenda.”
