Shill Alert?

Back in March, when President Obama sat down with Vice to discuss climate change, he was asked why resistance to act against this global threat is so strong.

Republican Senator Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia recently introduced a bill that would block the Obama administration’s Clean Power Plan, which would reduce America’s carbon pollution and shift us to a clean energy economy.

I wonder why?

Polluters gave @SenCapito $1.3 million dollars; now she proposes #Polluterprotectionact to let them keep polluting our air. #whovotesdirty.
