Shafting taxpayers – promoting crony corporatism

Shafting taxpayers – promoting crony corporatism

Will Congress perpetuate renewable subsidies, redistribute our wealth and hammer fossil fuels? President Reagan once said, “The nearest thing to eternal life we will ever see on this earth is a government program.” The omnibus budget package being negotiated on Capitol Hill is a perfect example.
