During an interview on FOX Business Network’s Mornings with Maria he said: “it’s a propaganda campaign. It is lies. It is to shore up what he thinks is going to be his legacy and what he is really doing is destroying low-cost, reliable, affordable electricity in America."
According to Murray, Obama’s clean energy plan would force 840 thousand additional people into poverty.
“He [Obama] has a bully pulpit -- and people are buying these lies… It’s sensationalism,” he argued.
Murray argues it is destroying the coal industry and costing the taxpayer more money.
“This is a very costly grab of the American power grid… has nothing to do with the environment… It is a fraud. It is crony capitalism. It is all about money, has nothing to do with the environment,” he said.
