As noted here, Repug U.S. House Rep Paul Broun of Georgia tells us the following…
Today, President Obama will announce the building of two new nuclear reactors at a Southern Company plant in Georgia. This is a step in the right direction towards achieving energy independence in the United States, but there is much more work to be done.
Increasing nuclear power is just the first step in a comprehensive, all-of-the-above plan for energy independence. Rather than additional regulations, we need additional refineries, clean coal and nuclear power plants, as well as ethanol, biodiesel, wind and solar investments.
As noted here, Broun voted against the American Clean Energy and Security Act last June.
The jokes write themselves sometimes, people.
