Pelosi district gets $2.1M to remove wood-fired devices as Congress offers tax credits for wood heat

  • Emissions reduction program spends taxpayer dollars to replace wood-burning stoves, fireplaces with electric heat pumps in district represented by House Speaker, who shepherded through Congress relief package that incentivizes wood heat.

*** begin quote ***

“It’s duplication nation,” said Adam Andrzejewski, CEO & Founder of the public spending watchdog group, OpenTheBooks.com. “Thoughtful and careful legislating is a thing of past. Simultaneously giving tax credits to install wood-burning devices and grants to replace them (to save the environment) is a great example of congressional insanity.

*** end quote ***

Here’s yet another example of incentivizing to install and at the same time to replace.

And the insanity continues.

What if “we” did neither and gave the money back to the taxpayers?

How many more programs like this are there?

Argh!
