That’s how many West Virginia coal miners have lost their jobs in the past seven years.
That’s 11,000 families whose lives were turned upside down by the policies of the Obama Administration and the National Democratic Party.
And each one of those 11,000 jobs supported another 5 jobs… that’s another 55,000 jobs and another 55,000 families.
When you stop to consider that most of these people were in the prime years of their lives, most had kids, mortgages, truck payments, they were saving for college, saving for retirement….
Their taxes paid for schools, for roads, for water and sewer lines. They paid for sheriff’s deputies and programs for senior citizens.
Today, those jobs are gone and so are the taxes…
This is the legacy of the Obama Administration, the national Democratic Party and the radicals who control the EPA. Over the next few months, we are going to be making a decision about who will lead our state and nation forward for the next eight years.
Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders would continue Obama’s anti-coal policies and, double down on them, costing even more coal jobs . We can’t afford that.
We aren’t telling you who to vote for…. but we can tell you who NOT to vote for if you care about our state and its future. A vote for Clinton or Sanders will destroy our state … it’s that simple….
Make your votes count … choose wisely.
