The devil is in the details is an old Ross Perot line and it seems Richard Pombo has a more colorful of expressing this point in reference to John Doolittle’s advocacy for promoting hydrogen fuels. Doolittle and Pombo are both Republicans from California. For a defense of subsidizing hydrogen fuels, see this op-ed by Robert C. Stempel. As much as I hate to agree with the Heritage Foundation, they seem to agree with me that much of the “tax incentives for special interests” is simply BS. But when the Heritage Foundation calls passing an energy proposal part of a jobs agenda, even this Keynesian has to object. Might we better spent the funds repairing the roads and building schools?
