Fiscal Cliff

Wind-Power Companies Among Fiscal Cliff Winners

Everybody loves a little unaffordable corporate welfare


Look! Up there! Just off the precipice of the terrifying fiscal cliff! It's a taxpayer built and outfitted Deltaplane carrying the Texas wind power industry to safety.

And lined up behind it on the cliff are hang gliders for such deserving and needy industries as Puerto Rican rum producers, electric scooters, Coca Cola and Hollywood.

Congress is launching this flying armada under the cover of whatever unspeakable horrors might have been visited upon Americans had it not bravely stepped in at the very last minute to protect random and profligate spending, the Washington Post reports today.
