Hey, we're pro business!

From the "if you have to say it, it's probably not true" file.

The Obamunists would have you believe that they're a very pro business administration.

But ask yourself the question. How many "pro business" administration would pull this one............

The Environmental Protection Agency on Thursday vetoed a controversial Arch Coal Inc. mine in southern West Virginia — a decision that underscores growing tension between the mining industry and regulators.

Using its power under the federal Clean Water Act, the EPA took the rare step of revoking a coal mine permit that had been approved by the Army Corps of Engineers in 2007.

The action, hailed by environmentalists as a major victory, effectively stifles development of Arch's Spruce No. 1 mine, a sprawling complex that would be among the largest operations of its kind in Appalachia. The Creve Coeur-based company, which vowed to challenge the decision, said the EPA move threatens a $250 million investment and 250 jobs.

We don't need no stinkin' jobs.
