BREAKING: Obama admin announces new ban on jobs

Obama admin. announces jobs ban
White House refuses to lift moratorium on Arizona mining

WASHINGTON — The nation’s largest grassroots advocate of rational environmental policy criticized Monday a White House announcement of a ban on uranium mining jobs across one million acres of Arizona.

“Like his ban on Gulf Coast energy jobs that threw thousands into unemployment, Barack Obama latest job ban throws more working families to the multi-million dollar environmentalist wolfpack,” said American Tradition Partnership Executive Director Donald Ferguson.

“Arizona is just the start.  Barack Obama plans to soon issue more job bans in states like Colorado, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia,” said Ferguson.  “The jobs Obama banned are not in the Grand Canyon and have no effect on the Grand Canyon.  Rather than lead an economy recovery, Barack Obama chose to again mislead.”

“These radical green attacks on jobs are why businesses can’t create jobs under Obama,” said Ferguson.

The Obama administration made the announcement from the Grand Canyon, the first White House announcement made there since Vice President Joe Biden last year promoted “Recovery Summer,” which ended with higher unemployment.  The Obama administration imposed a two-year ban on new uranium mining on 1 million acres of land next to the Grand Canyon.  The jobs ban would have expired in July.

Citing Obama’s ongoing practice of using expanded executive authority to impose policies that would not meet congressional approval, American Tradition Partnership will push for more recorded congressional votes on bills restoring legislative authority back to Congress.

Among the bills promoted by ATP are Sen. Rand Paul’s REINS Act (S.299) which requires all proposed major federal regulations to be approved by Congress and legislation repealing the 1906 Antiquities Act, originally intended to protect small Indian archaeological sites from looters but is now being misinterpreted to declare millions of acres as “national monuments” in order to prevent jobs from being created on them.

ATP does not advocate the election or defeat of candidates.  Supported by grassroots members, ATP is a fast-growing non-profit citizens’ group dedicated to promoting private property rights and responsible development and management of land, water, and natural resources.
