Your logic or sense of reasoning is a bit off here.

McConnell actually represents Kentucky and influenced legislation that impacted the investment in Kentucky.

Unless you can prove that Obama chose to CHANGE legislation to accommodate the steel mill in Ohio (which was never Obama's district) -- seems to me you are comparing -- not even apples to oranges because they are in the same family, fruit...but apples to onions.

Today's Derangement Topic brought to you by Time. (yesterday it was Newsweek)
Time to NPCs -> Mitch McConnell BAD, evil Russians
NPCs -> "Mitch McConnell BAD, evil Russians"
Like clockwork. Has to be seen to be believed.




(not one shred of proof that any of it is true)

Perhaps the US really needed a new aluminum plant, however, is it just a coincidence it will be built in Kentucky and Moscow Mitch effectively lifted sanctions against Russian firm?
It's really interesting to watch the Democrats continually project their own actions on others.

"Can't make it up"? Yeah, you can. You just did.
BUSH made the decision to terminate the space shuttle back in 2004 as part of his Vision for Space Exploration, where its main purpose in the coming years was to “help finish assembly of the International Space Station.” He announced that the Space Shuttle will retire from service in 2010, after three decades of duty, but didn't provide any funds for a replacement. At that point it was either use the Russians or abandon the ISS. The shuttles were simply getting too old and required too much maintenance. The space shuttle was an amazing achievement but they were dangerous. Out of the 6 built, 2 (1/3rd) were lost with their entire crew - and that risk was greater and greater the older the shuttles got.

Aluminum manufacturing is energy (electricity) and labor intensive.

Several other states have lower electric rates - as your link shows.
Aside from that, that might explain why the RUSSIANS wanted it in a particular place, but doesn't change the fact that Kentucky got the plant AFTER Moscow Mitch decided to go easy on the Russians.
