FreedomWorks for America joined with conservative activists and a group of coal miners from Western Pennsylvania to hold a press conference in Harrisburg, PA on October 16, 2012 calling for President Obama to stop his "War on Coal." With high unemployment, high gas prices, and rising costs of utilities, Americans cannot afford four more years of President Obama and liberal Senate Democrats like Bob Casey.

Speakers included Co-Founder of the Kitchen Table Patriots Anastasia Przybylski, FreedomWorks fellow Tom Borelli, Outreach Director Deneen Borelli, CEO of the PA Coal Alliance John Pippy, and PA Director of the NFIB Kevin Shivers.

The purpose of the press conference was to raise awareness of the Obama Administration's harmful energy agenda and burdensome regulations that continue to reduce America's demand for coal as a clean energy resource. FreedomWorks for America believes excessive regulations on energy production are harming the living standards for hard-working Americans, including coal miners and their families.
