Congressman Kevin Brady (R-TX), Chairman of the Joint Economic Committee, released the following statement following the release of the EPA’s new carbon emissions rules:
“These new rules make it clear that President Obama is more interested in pleasing ‘global warming’ special interest groups than he is in creating jobs and ensuring energy independence for our country. He continues to ignore the checks and balances put in place by our Constitution, choosing to implement extreme regulations that will harm our economy. His war on energy is really a war on the American family. While millions of Americans are still looking for good-paying jobs, the President’s administration is pushing out rules that kill job creation. While moms and dads are trying to balance the family budget, the EPA crams new red tape down our throats that will make energy prices sky-rocket. And when energy prices go up, the rest of the products that families need to buy will also go up. These burdensome new regulations are just another example of how the President’s policies continue to harm American families and businesses during this historically weak economic recovery. The bipartisan Electricity Security and Affordability Act I cosponsored would stop this new red tape and it’s time for Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to bring it up for a vote in the Senate.”
