The Death of a Republican Talking Point

Published on Jun 16, 2015

One of the main talking points that Republicans use to bash environmental protections is that they’ll cost us too many jobs. That is one of their main complaints about the new carbon emissions standards for power plants. They believe that if we put limits on the amount of greenhouse gases that these coal-fired power plants spew into our atmosphere, then we’ll lose too many jobs, sending local economies into economic ruin. It’s a great talking point in a nation that is currently starved for jobs, and it helps to sell fear to workers in these industries in order to get them to vote against their own health and safety. Unfortunately for Republicans who use these talking points, they are only telling half of the story. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.
