When President Obama was running for office for the first time, he emphatically said, he would close the coal mines.
So, evidently the UMWA was not listening as they backed him. Now it is a little late to be surprised that he is doing what he promised. I, for one, am so sorry that the U.M.W.A. did not pay attention to what their candidate was saying.
What is really sad is that the U.M.W.A. members will still vote for the Democrats.
