Congressional Caving to Nuclear Industry?
From the text of the flyer:
A $54.5 billion "Permanent Financing Platform" for nukes: A crushing burden on us all.
The nuclear power lobby is demanding more than $50 billion in taxpayer bailouts, loans, and loan guarantees.
"You put up the money," they say. "You take the risks. And We Will keep the profits."
Why does nuclear power need this huge handout? Because it can't compete with renewable energy in a free and open market.
If you thought that rescuing giant bankrupt banks was a bad idea, wait until we face a financial meltdown in the industry that invented meltdowns.
Don't let Congress cave. Tell your Senators and Congressperson: No Taxpayer Bailouts for Nukes!
