President Barack Obama knows that he can’t get Congress to enact sweeping “global warming” rules on America. Many Democrats from coal-producing states would oppose them. And Republicans generally agree such rules are based on junk science and environmental hysteria.
That’s why Obama announced huge, and unconstitutional executive orders to limit carbon emissions. And five Republican Governors just announced they will defy Obama! Those Governors are Mary Fallin of Oklahoma, Greg Abbott of Texas, Mike Pence of Indiana, Bobby Jindal of Louisiana, and Scott Walker of Wisconsin.
This is especially good news as Governors Jindal and Walker are both running for President!
As President Obama prepares to complete sweeping regulations aimed at tackling climate change, at least five Republican governors, including two presidential hopefuls, say they may refuse to carry out the rules in their states.
The resistance threatens to ignite a fierce clash between federal and state authorities, miring the climate rules in red tape for years. The fight could also undermine Mr. Obama’s efforts to urge other nations to enact similar plans this year as part of a major United Nations climate change accord.
Republican strategists say that rejection of Mr. Obama’s climate policy at the state level could emerge as a conservative litmus test in the 2016 election. Two of the governors who have said that they might defy the regulations — Scott Walker of Wisconsin and Bobby Jindal of Louisiana — are among at least four Republican governors who are expected to vie for the presidential nomination.
Other governors who have issued threats over the rules include Greg Abbott of Texas, Mike Pence of Indiana and Mary Fallin of Oklahoma.
The governors’ actions have come after the Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell, Republican of Kentucky, opened a campaign earlier this year urging all governors to refuse to carry out the climate change rules.
This is a crushing blow to the radical Obama agenda.

Too often, the federal government uses unconstitutional means to force rules and mandates on states. These environmental rules would be so costly to our economy, that it’s essential that every governor reject them!
