Skip to comments.Obama and O'Malley are Hurting the Poor in Md by Shutting Down Nuclear Power

Recently, there have been several pieces in the Baltimore Sun concerning the news that Constellation Energy is pulling out of their project to build a third nuclear reactor at Calvert Cliff's in Calvert County. They currently have two reactors in this rural county on the west shore of the Chesapeake Bay, and have been trying to secure a permit and federal loan for the proposed third reactor since 2007. The government originally promised Constellation a $7.6 billion loan, but Obama's anti-nuclear power, Nuclear Regulatory Agency is demanding an $880 million fee to proceed on the deal. These federal loans are absolutely vital to any construction of nuclear facilities to shield the contractors from costly legal battles with the eco-socialists. However, the demand by the Obama administration for an extra fee has put a halt to any plans to proceed with the project. Even though Gov. Martin O'Malley supports Obama's no growth, regressive, anti-nuclear policies, the Baltimore Sun is portraying him as the savior of the project. They report:
"O'Malley is one of several state and local officials who hope to keep the project alive and save thousands of jobs to build and operate the $9.6 billion reactor in Southern Maryland."

Maryland deserves the gov’t they get. They had a chance to elect Brian Murphy but settled for the establishment hack RINO
I know. And we are starting to regret it here. Ehrlich is running a very lackluster campaign. That’s the thing about RINO’s. Its not just about ideology. They simply lack the cajoles to swing for the fences.
The 0bama-Democrat-RINO (Progressive) "No Domestic Energy Policy!"
"As a result of the uncertainties surrounding the offshore drilling moratorium, we are actively seeking international opportunities to keep our rigs fully employed," Dickerson said. "We greatly regret the loss of U.S. jobs that will result from this rig relocation."
It is not just Gulf operations that are being effected either.
Let's not leave the refineries out.
Then there are the land-based oil leases.
Judge Grills Feds on Pulling Drilling Leases
"A federal judge on Wednesday questioned Interior Secretary Ken Salazar's justification for canceling 77 drilling leases sold by the Bush administration around national parks in Utah."
Let’s see, we can’t drill our own oil, we can’t build nuclear plants, where does that leave us????????
Awesome post! This is a great one stop shop resource of all the things the vermin are doing to make us more dependent on government and foreign entities.
Thank you. I added a link to this thread for the next time I use it.
Get yourself a pig and some pinwheels. We're going wind-power!
Taxpayer subsidized offshore wind turbines, and higher utility bills for those most directly affected.
