As Heating Aid to Poor Goes Down Energy Costs Rise

The National Center for Public Policy Research issued a press release on the Obama Administration’s FY2012 budget proposing to reduce home heating aid in half.

I’m quoted in the press release:

“Our goal as a society is to make people independent of government assistance, but the Obama Administration is cutting heating aid at the same time it is pursuing regulations that are sure to raise consumer prices on energy and virtually everything else.”
