    And had not the EPA protected the environment I'm sure you'd be bitching about that too. Either way because the president is a democrat you'd be bitching.

    Yeah I think you'd be bitching either way because all you want to do is bash Obama. You could care less about the jobs or the people in W Virginia.

    This is just an example of regulating interstate commerce, which is one of the powers delegated to the federal government by the constitution.

    Forgoing this regulation of interstate commerce in order to save people's jobs, however, is not one of the powers delegated to the federal government by the constitution.

    Why are conservatives (who are supposedly in favor of strict readings of the constitution) bitching about this?

    So, I've started multitudes of thread bitching about the EPA not regulating businesses enough? Care to show us one of those?

    Shutting businesses down isn't regulation. Common sense dictates that this is over-regulation. I would love to see the part of the Constitution where it says, "...and shut businesses down, if need be".

    Wrong. It was the company's choice to eliminate the jobs.

    That's like saying it's Giffords's fault that she got shot.

    Not sure that is correct...

    UPDATE 1-US axes permit for Arch's giant mountain coalmine | Reuters
    St. Louis-based Arch said it would vigorously defend the permit in court. EPA's revocation of the permit blocks an additional $250 million in investment and 250 jobs, the company said.
