Conway on Climate Deal: Why Are We Letting India and China Get Off Scot-Free

‘His first responsibility is to Americans, their interest, their jobs and economic growth here’

EXCERPT:

CONWAY: "The President said many things yesterday. Most fundamentally, the President said, as he always has, George, that his first responsibility is to Americans, their interest, their jobs and economic growth here. Why should we frontload so much of the economic burden in this agreement to the detriment of the American worker? All the projections say that we would have a decline in some of the key sectors where men and women in this country rely upon for their livelihood: cement, paper, natural gas, coal. Why are we doing that and yet letting India and China get off scot-free?"
