Here Come the Idiots
The Democrats, rushing to screw with the fuel marketplace, in worthless -- and doomed -- attempt at creating energy independence through expensive, uneconomical, and filthy coal-to-fuel plants, subsidized by you know who (us.).
Coal-state lawmakers are pushing for a wide array of government assistance to jump start the new industry. In the House, Representative Rick Boucher, Democrat of Virginia, has drafted a bill that would insulate coal-to-liquid plants from gyrations in energy prices by providing companies with automatic loans if oil prices drop too low to make coal-based liquids profitable.
Other lawmakers have proposed letting the Air Force sign 20-year contracts to buy vast amounts of coal-based jet fuel at fixed prices. And still others have proposed including coal-based liquids in a government mandate to greatly expand production of alternative fuels.
Leave it to the market, you bozos.
