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

“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.

How many more programs like this are there?

Argh!

That change was not the only damage done by the Democrats, according to the Review-Journal, as Democrats also essentially eliminated a requirement that legislation which boosts the deficit be offset with cuts elsewhere.

Although the previous rule was clearly not working, since the deficit was booming regardless of which party was in control of the House, “the symbolism here is obvious and will allow Democrats to offer budget-busting legislation on a wide array of dangerous progressive priorities without concern for the long-term fiscal ramifications,” the editorial stated.
