Senator Jay Rockefeller (D-W.V.) lashed out Friday against the Obama Administration's stance on environmental policy and coal power, an economic staple for West Virginia.
According to Rockefeller, there has been a disconnect between Obama's accepting rhetoric toward coal mining and coal power and the president's actual policies regarding West Virginia's official state rock.
"He says it in his speeches, but he doesn't say it in (his budget proposal). He doesn't say it in the actions of (EPA Administrator) Lisa Jackson. And he doesn't say it in the minds of my own people. And he's beginning to not be believable to me," Rockefeller said Friday.
