President Barack Obama
commented on How Much Are You Paying a Year to Subsidize Washington's Businesses? $349!
This bothered me immensely when I was in the Senate, and still does. On the Federal level however, I want to assure folks that subsidies, incentives, and investments with business is critical for helping grow our economy, support our infrastructure, and deal with the affects of climate change by investing in solar and wind power. Cries of my performing crony capitalism are simply wrong.
