U.S. Senate Candidate Rand Paul spoke a town hall meeting to discuss the so-called "Cap and Trade" bill in Pikeville.
Paul says the legislation, if passed, would be a disaster for Kentucky.
He also talked about the EPA's decision to hold up 79 mountaintop permits for additional scrutiny.
“I think there's a silent war by Obama, against coal. it's not on the front pages, but you can see it and you can feel in when you're in eastern Kentucky. You talk to anyone who either works in the coal fields or is a supplier for the coal industry, you feel this tension...that the industry is being choked,” Paul said.
The republican eye doctor from Bowling Green says if elected, he would defend the coal industry.
Rand Paul supports permanent repeal of the punishing 45% Washington D.C. Death Tax in order to promote entrepreneurship and job creation in America. While the Death Tax is scheduled to drop to zero at the end of this month, Congressional Democrats are rushing through a bill to restore the tax and keep soaking hard-working families in the name of class warfare and wealth redistribution.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi is expected to call up HR 4154, the Death Tax restoration bill, for a vote this week. Rand opposes this and all other tax increases.
