Jeb Bush Calls Obama's Climate Rule a 'Job Killer'

President Obama unveiled historic climate change rules for power plants, and Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush said "It's typical of the Obama administration, taking executive power he doesn't have. I believe it's unconstitutional, and, I think, in a relatively short period of time, the courts will determine that as well." Although, the Environmental Protection Agency maintains its action on the climate rule is within its power for regulating pollution under the Clean Air Act, it is expected to face legal challenges.

Obama's newest regulation aims to reduce carbon emissions by 32 percent nationwide by 2030, based on carbon levels in 2005. If states do not submit plans to reach the specified carbon-reduction goals, the EPA will write and impose strategies for them. On Sunday night, Bush also said, "I think it's going to be a disaster. For high, sustained economic growth, where people have a chance at earned success, this is going to be a job killer." Bush also made fun of Obama's 2 percent annual U.S. economic growth rate.
