“The debate presents an excellent opportunity for the candidates to explain why they are putting the President’s political priorities ahead of everyday Americans’ pocketbook priorities in this critical election.”


WASHINGTON, D.C. – In advance of the first Democratic primary debate the American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity is calling on the candidates to justify their support of President Obama’s climate agenda at the cost of hard-working Americans’ economic well-being.


“If they fly true to form, the Democratic candidates will be all but tripping over themselves to show their support for the President’s costly climate agenda,” said Laura Sheehan, ACCCE senior vice president of communications. “What the American people won’t hear is an honest assessment of the President’s climate crusade and the economic hardship everyday Americans will bear as a result of his executive overreach.”


NERA report that analyzed the proposed rule estimates EPA’s carbon regulations could cost American consumers and businesses a staggering $41 billion or more per year.


ACCCE previously issued a detailed overview of where the candidates stand on President Obama’s costly carbon plan.
