"The National Mining Association (NMA) extends its congratulations to President Obama upon his reelection.

“It would be nice if the country’s leaders would visit southern Illinois, talk to some folks, and see what kind of contribution coal is making to the local economy. It would be even nicer if those same folks -- politicians, regulators and activists -- would visit eastern Kentucky, southwestern Virginia and southern West Virginia to explain why it has become so important to them to destroy those economies and the lives of families in those regions.”
