On the eve of next week’s expected announcement regarding President Obama’s proposed national energy tax, Sen. Mike Enzi (R-Wyoming) says the administration has set out to kill coal energy and its 800,000 jobs, as well as that of the Keystone pipeline.

“The Administration has set out to kill coal and its 800,000 jobs. If it succeeds in death by regulation, we’ll all be paying a lot more money for electricity – if we can get it. Our pocketbook will be lighter, but our country will be darker,” Sen. Enzi said.
