Obama’s Green and Lacking Economy
Three years after Obama launched a push to build a job-creating "green" economy, the White House can say that more than 1 million drafty homes have been retrofitted to lower heating and cooling costs, while energy generation from renewable sources such as wind and solar has nearly doubled since 2008. “Quote from the American Thinker”
Many hard working Americans spent thousands of dollars of their hard earned working for something dollars, On green energy items, as per the Obama save the planet theme in 2008. Lord knows I have, and I have lowered my own electric bill by $44.00 a month.
We thought that we were all doing the right thing to help save the planet, Now this Obama admin has put a 250% Tariff on Chinese made solar panels, So now our American Solar Panel distributors can not afford to pick up their shipments at the docks, and we are all out our solar panels that we ordered, This will now put Companies and Business’s in America, Out of Business. We hire American businesses to install our solar arrays, and install our grid tie invertors. This Obama administration has put forth a war on small Business owners in our country. This is going to account for more lost American jobs. Green jobs ruined Spain and now the Progressives are going to make them ruin this country.
So here is another thing, Now that many Hard Working Americans have installed their “GREEN ENERGY SYSTEMS” and they are indeed working, American Energy companies, such as APS in the state of Arizona, Now have permission from Big Government to raise our rates, Because of lost PROFITS, can you believe this? We as good citizens try to go and do the right thing and what happens? The Obama admin screws us, I saved power through out the year, so now I must be punished for doing so right! Energy Independence? Are you kidding me! Arizona Public Service tells us that they will only raise our rates 1% the first year, what does this actually mean? That the second and third years they will raise our rates a lot higher than just 1 % in the future.
Why is it alright to punish people who just tried to do the right thing, in the first place?
It seems to me that everything our Government does is always turning around to bite the hand that feeds them. Why our Government is so very corrupted?
I suggest to all American citizens that you reach out to Big Government and explain to them exactly how you feel about what is taking place here, we save our countries energy and we get charged more? I have one hell of an investment in Green Energy items at my home, to help save the planet, and save my house hold some money, and now I get punished by this progressive Obama administration?
