Well, technically, it would be $5 billion in rebates for retrofitting homes for energy efficiency, $3.8 billion to encourage the use of natural gas trucks (aka a PR campaign), and $400 million to study electric cars. Study electric cars? That used to be called "research and development" and was the responsibility of the car companies.
This has a $9.2 billion "feel good" stamp on it. That's about 9.2 billion ways for corrupt officials to misspend the funds.
Worse, but typical of environmentalist driven bills, the bill is expected to destroy "hundreds of thousands of Gulf jobs" and raise energy prices.
When you follow the money, it seems lining environmentalists pockets has taken priority over protecting working Americans.
