They have nothing to do with cleaner air

Political consultant Dick Morris said on “America’s Forum” today that Obama’s decision to by-pass Congress and enact climate control with new EPA regulations are the basic definition of “socialism.”

“Obama is now ceasing control of another seventeen percent of the American economy. Federal government spending is thirty-five percent, federal stare, and local. Then healthcare is another seventeen. Manufacturing is 10. Electric power energy and generation is seven. So he’s now trying to control that entire range. And that basically defines socialism,” Morris said.

Daily Surge reported earlier this week that these new EPA climate rules will cripple the coal industry and end up destroying over 224,000 Jobs. The EPA has already admitted that these new rules will raise Americans’ electricity prices

Morris predicted that the United States Supreme Court would eventually overrule the new EPA regulations and deem them unconstitutional. Morris also said that these new rules have absolutely nothing to do with producing cleaner energy.

“And don’t think for a minute that global warming or that health is what’s motivating this. It’s very simply a power grab by trying to regulate power plants.”
