"White House Adviser: Chamber 'Wrong Again' on Climate Rule"

"White House adviser John Podesta slammed a U.S. Chamber of Commerce report Wednesday that claimed the administration's coming climate rule on power plants would cost more than $50 billion per year.

"I'm old enough to know what a broken record actually sounds like. @USChamber wrong before, wrong again on pollution," Podesta tweeted Wednesday afternoon.

The Chamber report comes days before the administration is expected to unveil the first carbon emissions limits for existing power plants, a key pillar of President Obama's climate legacy and what many are deeming the strongest show of force yet by the White House on climate change."
