Hold on to your wallets: Obama pledges to double down on clean energy
The debt has increased over $5 trillion since Obama took office (cleaning up Bush’s mess was expensive), so we’ll see in November how this “double down” talk goes over, especially when he’s talking about doubling down in a graveyard of taxpayer money that’s littered with bankruptcy after bankruptcy.
This is President Obama in Michigan yesterday:
I want clean energy to happen here in the United States. I want advanced batteries made here in the Unites States. I want electric cars made here in the United States. I want solar and wind power made here in the United States. We’ve been subsidizing oil companies with taxpayer giveaways for about a hundred years now. It’s time to double down on clean energy that’s never been more promising.
