DC Circuit: "No, You Can't Kill Electric Power"

One part of the Obozo Agenda is temporarily thwarted.

Amidst Obama’s inexorable war on American energy, consumers, jobs, and prosperity, his EPA is in the process of promulgating 4 new pollution rules that will bury the coal industry and “necessarily” raise the price of electricity on American households.  They are the Cross-State Air Pollution Rule, the Mercury and Air Toxics Standards for Utilities (MACT), the Cooling Water Intake Structures regulation, and the Disposal of Coal Combustion residuals.  The former two have already been finalized while the latter two are close behind.  Today, the D.C. Circuit Court struck down the EPA’s authority to implement the Cross-State Air Pollution Rule.

Three to go.

[Obama] agenda? Wasn't this actually a rule rolled out during the Bush administration?
