New Crossroads GPS radio ad attacks White House war on coal, jobs

Earlier this month I covered the following comments made by Cecil Roberts, the president of the United Mine Workers union, but now you can hear them for yourself in a new Crossroads GPS radio ad running in West Virginia, Ohio, and Pennsylvania.

"The Navy SEALs shot Osama Bin Laden in Pakistan,' the union leader said, "and [EPA administrator] Lisa Jackson shot us in Washington." Roberts is referring to new regulations that will make coal-fired power plants much more expensive to operate.

"Look--this is a job killer for us," he adds.

President Obama did promise to "bankrupt" the coal industry.
