What was the reason given for developing the Department of Energy during the Carter administration? We have spent multi-billions of dollars in support of this agency and I am willing to bet not one person who reads this will remember the reason given. It was very simple:
"Promoting America’s energy security through reliable, clean, and affordable energy."
Don't believe it.... read their mission statement.
Now, haven't they just done a bang up job of fulfilling their mandate??
In 2008 the DOE budget was $24.2 billion. Money well spent, NOT!
Note: For years, I've advocated GRAC, the Government Reform and Realignment Committee, to reform government.
