Energy DUMB! FY2009 Budget Hits the Hill

Can we hope for Dead On Arrival.  When it comes to energy, the President’s bill has some tremendous problems.  For example:

 The FY2009 DOE budget terminates the weatherization assistance program …

The Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) is cut by $280 million …

The Energy Efficency and Renewable Energy (EERE) budget is cut by $490 million (28 percent).

Coal research is expanded by $237 million, or more than 40 percent

And so on …
