John McCain hopes to solve the country's energy crisis with cold hard cash.What Sort Of Pinko Red Wants To STEAL our hard earned tax payer money to frivilously squander it on non-military stuff, or at least non-military like contractors, with no fault fixed price, with overages, bids...
The Republican presidential nominee-in-waiting is proposing a $300 million government prize to whomever can develop an automobile battery that far surpasses existing technology.
The bounty would equate to $1 for every man, woman and child in the country, "a small price to pay for helping to break the back of our oil dependency," McCain said in remarks prepared for delivery Monday at Fresno State University in California.
"In the quest for alternatives to oil, our government has thrown around enough money subsidizing special interests and excusing failure," said excerpts from McCain's prepared text. "From now on, we will encourage heroic efforts in engineering, and we will reward the greatest success."
In his latest speech, McCain expressed exasperation both with the federal government and the private sector.
He said rising costs during a time of stagnant wages evokes the 1970s era of "stagflation."
Without blaming his fellow Republicans in the Bush administration directly, McCain said: "It feels the same today, because the unwise policies of our government have left America's energy future in the control of others."
