    All of this bullshit is the same. The legislation means nothing because the bureaucracy can do what it wants.

    Gotta vote no.

    Tough vote though. I am all for nuke power. Given that they have spent us into a hole that is trillions of dollars deep, I can't say yes to spending money. Now if they want to get out of the way of letting states, utilities, and municipalities go on a nuke building binge, I am all for it.

    Half our nuclear experts are retiring.

    It takes ten years and 10 billion, at least, and that's AFTER you have the needed scientists and engineers.

    Do Republicans even believe in science? One wonders.

    Of course, that would mean plenty of jobs for Democratic and liberal scientists. I'm all for that.

    Zillions of union construction jobs. We need a law that only US made equipment & labor can be used to maximize the job multiplier...
