Editorial Comment

Welcome to the Saturday Edition of The Truth Be Told.

This expanded edition was brought about by the immense amount of lunacy being spewed from the wingnuts. The volume has been such in the past two weeks in particular that it has been impossible to keep up with all the sheer madness and report it here on The Truth Be Told.
As a result we determined that expanding the weekend posts would help bring the blog back to a more timely manner, since we were expanding one section of the blog we decided to expand all four sections.
This may only be a one off expansion or it may become a more or less regular feature depending on the insanity of the wingnuts and the volume of garbage they produce.

Enjoy and Have Fun

Bernie Sanders Strikes The Heart Of The Koch Empire With Bill To Give Solar Energy To The Poor

Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) hit the Koch brothers where it counts by proposing new legislation that make solar energy more accessible for low-income families.
Sanders detailed his plan in a statement:
“While the cost of solar panels has gone down in recent years, it is still out of reach for millions of low-income families that need it the most,” said Sanders. “Families across this country struggle to pay electricity bills and access to solar energy can help reduce these costs.”
The Low-Income Solar Act of 2015 was introduced on the same day the White House proposed an initiative to make solar power more accessible to households and businesses. The Sanders bill would provide $200 million in loans and grants through the Department of Energy to offset the upfront costs for solar arrays on community facilities, public housing and low-income family homes. These projects would be required to prioritize loans for woman- and minority-owned small businesses and set aside funding for developing solar arrays in Appalachia, Indian tribal lands and Alaskan native communities.
“The scientific community tells us very clearly if we’re going to reverse climate change and the great dangers it poses for the planet we must move aggressively to transform our energy system away from fossil fuels to sustainable energy,” Sanders said. “We can achieve this goal, save families money and protect the planet for future generations.”
Giving low-income families access to affordable, clean energy would be an economic game changer. It is also the worst nightmare of the Koch brothers. The Kochs have spent hundreds of millions of dollars funding climate change denial.
Any legislation that would get Americans to use fewer fossil fuels is bad news for Charles and David Koch. The Kochs have tried to keep their climate change denial funding a secret, but word has leaked out over the last few years.
Bernie Sanders is taking the fight to the Koch brothers and other corporate interests who are helping to keep low-income people in poverty by fighting against clean energy.
Sanders is walking the walk while talking the talk. He is one of the few members of Congress who will take on the Koch brothers and fight for ordinary Americans.
