Even as Obamacare is redefining dismal Democrats are exploring new ways to screw America up
Senate Democrats have begun a renewable energy blitz, with two bills mandating an increase in renewable use through 2025.
Sens. Tom Udall of New Mexico and Mark Udall of Colorado introduced a bill last week that would require that 25 percent of the country’s power come from renewable energy sources by 2025.
Another bill introduced by Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Ed Markey would require the country to get 25 percent of its power from renewable sources by 2025. Like the Udall bill, the Markey legislation would allow companies to purchase renewable energy credits to comply with the mandate. Companies that don’t comply would be forced to pay a fine.
Here they go again. They simply never learn. They cannot make something happen by legislating it so. IF renewable energy becomes affordable, and practical, and reliable enough, then yes, people will buy it. That is how the market works. But legislation cannot FORCE reliability, or affordability or practicality. A law cannot force people to abandon energy sources in favor of others. Renewable energy will have to earn increased business, Democrats need to come to grips with this reality.
