While stumping for Rep. Timothy Bishop, D-N.Y., Vice President Joe Biden told a crowd that "every single great idea that has marked the 21st century, the 20th century and the 19th century has required government vision and government incentive." These "great" government ideas include abysmal programs such as Social Security, the Post Office and public schools where only 35 percent of students are proficient in reading. Biden's misguided comments demonstrate the disturbing trend of turning to tax dollars and federal agencies to address problems that are best handled privately. Nowhere is this truer than with the Obama administration's plan to "win the future" through clean energy initiatives.
The president is leading the progressive charge in forcing environmental conscientiousness upon the masses. He has made it his presidential mission to implement "green energy" and "clean jobs" into the American economy, market signals be damned. Obama believes that the accomplishment of such a wildly noble, unquestioningly beneficial goal must be solely the duty of the federal government, but if he were to examine past governmental efforts to intervene in environmental affairs, he might notice that those experiments did far more harm than good.
In a special report in the May issue of Townhall Magazine full of inconvenient facts that are sure to annoy and frustrate the enviro-Left, Helen Whalen-Cohen and Erika Johnsen explain exactly why bigger government will not save the economy or the environment but private solutions will.
"The Great Green Gaffe" exposes much of the nonsense that comes from the liberal environmentalist movement. Their plans serve only to hurt both the environment and the economy -- but there is hope. You can bet the Left won't hearing this, but it must be told. Order today to get the full report.
