Think about this number $125 million. Just how many families making $75,000 a year would have to donate their entire income to the federal government so that this idiocy can take place? Try 1666 (I’ll round down instead of up). So consider a whole neighborhood of 1666 houses with families each making that much and then consider that all their economic action would be wasted.And then the government would have to steal more money from hard working people to support these 1666 families. Its never presented in quite that straightforward a way – but that’s what it comes down to.Just how many “Green pathways out of poverty” will actually be created? I’m sure that all this money will go to a bunch of people who can throw around “green” language and suck all the funds from some gullible bureaucrat. But if even 1 job is created it won’t be done by green seminars on how to get poor people to install solar panels.
And what’s worse? $125 million is now the floor under which a whole edifice of “green” spending will occur – each year wasting the economic output of more and more families.
