Heritage Action: Pres. Obama’s Global Warming Executive Overreach Will Destroy Jobs

Washington – This afternoon, President Obama announced his intention to sidestep Congress and have the EPA regulate carbon emissions from existing power plants under the guise of reducing global warming.  Heritage Action released the following statement from chief executive officer Michael A. Needham:

“Time and time again, President Obama has demonstrated a willingness to bypass Congress to advance his big-government agenda.  Now, by executive fiat, he is pushing regulations that will destroy hundreds of thousands of jobs.  Conservatives in Congress must be willing to use the appropriations process to rein in this overreach.”
