Is Obama Talking Out Of Both Sides Of His Face Regarding Energy?

November 10, 2010

Is he also putting a nation at risk by “de-funding” nuclear recycling plants?

When you last paid your electric bill, you probably didn’t think much about the staggering amounts of money paid to the federal government by nuclear power plants who generate your electricity. $206 million Missouri dollars have been dumped into the Nuclear Waste fund, which was more than $30 billion strong. The fund was set up to develop and manage a repository at Yucca Mountain in Nevada. However, President Obama and Harry Ried have killed that project and hijacked the funding to funnel it into the general operating fund for other government programs.

While the repository money flows out of that project, nuclear power plants still make nuclear waste that sits and accumulates in those power plants, un-recycled.

The continuing political deadlock over nuclear waste is hampering efforts to build new nuclear plants.

Additionally, while Obama claimed to have supported nuclear power and the construction of new power plants, this action would certainly fly in the face of any statements in support of alternative energy.

It’s your money, folks. With the questions about future energy needs in the United States, which would you rather fund, alternative energy or pork-filled government programs?
