President Barack Obama will find a bucket of coal at his doorstep on Christmas.
Congresswoman Shelley Moore Capito, Co-Founder of the Congressional Coal Caucus, has teamed up with Friends and Families for Coal and Citizens for Coal, to deliver a bucket of coal to the White House for Christmas.
In a statement released by Capito Friday, she said the bucket of coal represents the concerns of those West Virginia families who are struggling this holiday season due to Obama’s anti-coal agenda.
“Coal means community in the Mountain State, and I am happy to deliver this bucket to the President to remind him that we will keep fighting to keep coal in the mix,” said Capito.
Capito will also be delivering a binder full of petitions entitled “All we want for Christmas is to keep our coal jobs” signed by over 600 West Virginians.
