She continues her lurch left to fend off Bernie.
Des Moines, Iowa (CNN)Hillary Clinton pledged Sunday that as president she would put the United States on a path toward generating enough renewable energy to power every home in the country by 2027 – ten years after she would hypothetically take office.
Here’s the thing… the power industry is mostly privately held in America. In order for her to accomplish her pledge of taking America from 9% renewable energy to 100%, it would require either massive mandates and regulations on the industry and/or a government takeover of the energy sector. We may eventually get to 100% as the technology improves, but you don’t do a ten-fold increase in ten years by just using little incentives and such.
So as you lefties cheer Clinton’s pledge, please recognize that she’s either proposing an incredible government intervention that will cost all of us a fortune, or she’s just lying to get your vote. My money’s on the latter.
