The mouse that roared - Indiana will ignore EPA's Clean Power Plan says Governor Mike Pence

Indiana Governor Mike Pence is prepared to ignore the Obama administration’s climate rule for power plants unless the proposed regulations are drastically changed. “If your administration proceeds to finalize the Clean Power Plan, and the final rule has not demonstrably and significantly improved from the proposed rule, Indiana will not comply,” wrote the supple spined former henchman of John Boehner. “Our nation needs an ‘all of the above’ energy strategy that relies on a variety of different energy sources,” wrote the Governor proving he has not exhausted his supply of cliches.
Actually Indiana needs an "all of the above" energy strategy like it needs another Hepatitis C outbreak. It gets 85% of its electricity from coal fired plants and 26,000 Hoosiers are employed in the coal industry and as Jimmy Carter was fond of telling us has enough coal to last 600 years.
The last time Governor Pence took a stand on a substantive issue his flip flop resulted in civil protections based on sexual orientation. Evidently the opinions of Tim Cooke and Charles Barkley carry more weight than mere voters. Maybe he should have run this by Miley Cyrus before calling a press conference. With friends like Pence...
