As Navy Fleet Shrinks, Obama Administration Diverts Funds to $26 a Gallon Biofuels
As Navy Fleet Shrinks, Obama Administration Diverts Funds to $26 a GallonBiofuels.HT: Heritage.
Navy Secretary Ray Mabus continued to push for his “green fleet” this week, yet again championing an initiative that wastes millions of taxpayer dollars while providing no benefit to the Navy.
In spite of these serious flaws with the fuel source—and despite the Navy’s broader fleet and budget concerns—the Obama Administration continues to push the biofuel agenda. Rather than wasting taxpayer dollars by making the Navy a guinea pig for a politically charged project, the government should make a more solid investment in building new ships and maintaining those still in the fleet. Freedom of the seas and American security depend on it.
