And If Emissions Aren't Capped, Senator?

The new Senator from West Virginia, Carte Goodwin (a Democrat) says he won't vote for the current House legislation capping greenhouse gas emissions because
"From what I’ve seen, they are simply not right for West Virginia," Goodwin said at a press conference.... "I will not support any piece of legislation that threatens any West Virginia job or any West Virginia family."
Just once I'd like to see a reporter followup such a statement with the simple question, "How will West Virginia families be harmed if the legislation doesn't pass?"

Is that too much to ask?
