Nuclear power biofuels.
We need to invest in the technology.
That will help us use less oil well in our cars and -- trucks.

The feds are paying them to shut down.
Again our tax dollars -- work.

The private sector should be the developer with generous tax credits as incentives so question the federal government is allow the entrepreneur or.
