Twamp betrays coal miners
Remember he courted them in the election, saying he'd bring coals jobs back to Appalachia? We know those jobs aren't coming back due to cheaper natural gas production. So what does Twamp do to the coal miners he manipulated? His budget proposal will eliminate the Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC), a federal program designed to invest in economic development and provides education and training for different jobs. The Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) program will also face drastic cuts, which program also retrains these folks in new jobs. Twamp betrayed you yet again. Please remember that in coming elections.
