Nation’s leaders are ignoring obvious energy alternative

Obama keeps his campaign promises to make coal powered electricity unaffordable while pouring billions of dollars down the “green energy” rat hole which is far more expensive and can’t even come close to supplying the demand. Germany, Spain and many other countries have already learned the hard economic lessons of “green energy” and have reversed course. Of course, it is always the consumers/taxpayers who end up paying the tab for misguided government policies.

Listen up, Obama and Reid. Ever hear of natural gas? It is cheap and plentiful. Throw the bums out!
