You need to review the history of this bill. Republicans did not write this law. They had no input whatsoever. It was thrown together and passed by legislative force by autocratic Democrats. Make no mistake, we are only seeing the tip of the iceberg that is going to sink the Titanic.
You certainly have a deeper knowldge of this issue than I, my point is the republicans can’t seem to tell a story about things like the US sending money to Brazil for their oil drilling but we close 1.6 millon acres in America and thus reduce jobs. We spend money in Asia for wind projects, while our roads or bridges could get needed up grades and create jobs, better transportation.
