Ya'll are welcome to him. Two years ago he was a Republican, then he switched, now he's back. Dude doesn't know what he is, and I'd rather not have flakes on my side, anyway. He'll probably switch back in a 2020 when there's a Dem in the White House again... if he's still in office by then. Dude's party affiliation must be attached to a Clapper.

The Trump Budget Cuts Hit Coal Communities and Workers Where It Hurts

"...president Donald Trump campaigned on promises to revitalize the U.S. coal industry and bring back coal mining jobs. On March 28, he signed an executive order that began the process of rolling back key federal efforts, including the Environmental Protection Agency’s, or EPA’s, Clean Power Plan to reduce carbon pollution from the U.S. power sector.1 Despite the rhetoric and political theater that accompanied the order’s release, it will likely have minimal impact on the coal industry and coal mining jobs, given the structural economic challenges the industry faces.

By contrast, President Trump’s fiscal year 2018 budget blueprint would have unequivocally negative impacts on communities that have struggled economically due to the coal industry’s downturn. The budget would gut the federal economic and workforce development programs that are most targeted and active in their support of these communities. It proposes eliminating all federal discretionary funding—the entirety—of 7 of the 12 federal programs that coordinate investments and other forms of assistance to support coal communities. During the last two years, these programs have worked under the aegis of the Obama administration’s Partnerships for Opportunity and Workforce and Economic Revitalization, or POWER, Initiative to grow new businesses and industries, create jobs, and train dislocated coal economy workers for in-demand occupations.

Based on the limited information provided by the blueprint, president Trump’s FY 2018 budget would cut at least $1.13 billion from these programs and offices, including several in their entirety—a total that may increase when the full budget is released in May.2 Through the POWER Initiative, offices and programs targeted by the cuts funded more than $115.8 million in economic development, job training, and other grant projects targeting coal communities in more than 20 states from 2015 through early 2017.3..."

First, thanks for a very relevant post FT, personally I won't wring my hands wondering about the impact on voters facing such dismal circumstances and policy initiative(s) but I think we all suspect their reflexive tendencies.

My BIL recently completed a solar installation in KY. I know it was rough going and they had to completely shut down because of freezing temperatures. But hopefully the people he hired provided a boost to the local economy. A few years ago, he was doing chemical plant shutdowns. The next job is in Florida.

Governor Who Switched Parties For Trump Owes Millions In Taxes After Deal With Russian Company

It was a nice photo-op for the West Virginia governor, but there seems to be more to the story than a simple change of heart.
