Obama Unchained: Obama set to Blitz the Country 1,000s of EPA Regulations Punking GOP Yellowbellies

Until I see the D.C. GOPers grow a backbone I will continue to berate them on this blog for the foreseeable future.

Fox News reports the Obama administration just wrapped up another big year for regulations and executive actions — pushing through everything from a new type of retirement account to a deportation reprieve affecting millions of illegal immigrants to long-awaited standards for coal waste.

But thousands of proposed regulations remain on the table and could set the stage for a rush of rulemaking in the president’s final two years in office.
Some of the biggest items are expected from the Environmental Protection Agency, which is set to finalize several landmark rules in 2015. Perhaps the most controversial concern new regulations on coal-fired power plants.

The Obama administration is trying to get fossil-fuel fired power plants to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 30 percent from 2005 levels by 2030.
The EPA proposed the rules last year and is set to finalize them by summer 2015.
But with Republicans taking control of the Senate and boosting their numbers in the House, incoming leaders are girding for battle.

Incoming Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, a Republican who represents the coal state of Kentucky, told The Associated Press last month he’ll do all he can to stop regulations hurting the industry.

Though the administration is pushing the regulations as part of a broad plan to improve air quality and curb global warming, McConnell told the AP: “My first obligation is to protect my people, who are hurting as the result of what this administration is doing.”
He added: “I’m going to do any and everything I can to stop it.”
