Congress’s Energy Bill: Lipstick on a Pig
Not too long ago, I addressed the security aspects of the pending energy legislation in the Christian Science Monitor. Today, I examine some of the economic consequences of the legislation in the ProJo.
Despite the attempt to appeal to environmentalists and advocates of “fairy dust” energy sources, aka “renewable energy,” this bill, like most energy bills, is laden with pork, albeit “sophisticated” pork. Pork comes from pigs. You can try to dress up a pig by putting lipstick on it, but in the end, it’S still a PIG.
