Coal Miners, Conservatives to Hold Press Conference in Harrisburg to Stop Obama's "War on Coal"


HARRISBURG, Pa., Oct. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- FreedomWorks for America will join conservative activists and a group of coal miners from Western Pennsylvania to hold a press conference 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 will include: Co-Founder of the Kitchen Table Patriots Anastasia Przybylski, FreedomWorks fellow Tom Borelli, Outreach Director Deneen Borelli, former PA State Senator John Pippy, grassroots activist Mark Fischer and coal miner Gary DuBois.

WHEN: Tuesday, October 16, 2012 from 2-2:30 p.m. ET, including Q&A following the prepared statements.

WHERE: Harrisburg Capitol Rotunda, Harrisburg, PA.

WHY:  The purpose of the press conference is 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.
