Coal Miners Discouraged After Black Lung Meeting With Mitch McConnell

A group of coal miners afflicted with black lung disease met with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, says Reuters.

The meeting was meant to convince lawmakers to restore a higher excise tax on coal companies to help fund their medical care.

McConnell represents Kentucky - one of the states that has seen a rebound in the progressive respiratory illness.

He gave no assurances about the excise tax and left without answering questions or offering details.
