Let's blame the GOP...
I was making a joke, ******. They didn't mention the GOP at all and were simply speaking about the industry. The guy who mentioned the failure of a carbon tax law as a reason why investment will remain in gas power was previously a consultant for General Atomics:

General Atomics was conceived in 1955 at San Diego, California for the purpose of harnessing the power of nuclear technologies for the benefit of mankind. General Atomics’ basic research into fission and fusion has matured into competence in many technologies, making GA and its affiliated companies one of the world’s leading resources for high-technology systems development ranging from the nuclear fuel cycle to remotely operated surveillance aircraft, airborne sensors, and advanced electric, electronic, wireless and laser technologies.
Here's his little write-up
(PDF) describing himself on his energy consulting firm website
President Bush appointed Mr. Longenecker in December 1992 to serve as Transition Manager for the United States Enrichment Corporation, a government owned, for-profit corporation that provides uranium enrichment services to electric utilities throughout the world.
In the area of commercial nuclear power, Mr. Longenecker served from 2001-2004 as a member of the Board of Directors of the Nuclear Energy Institute. In addition, from 1997-1999 Mr. Longenecker assisted Ontario Hydro Nuclear in developing and implementing a more effective regulatory compliance strategy for their 20 nuclear power plants. In 1997, Mr. Longenecker chaired OHN’s Regulatory Impact Task Force, reporting to the Vice President of Regulatory Affairs.
Sounds like a real nuclear hatin' Democrat out to blame the GOP while sabotaging any progress in nuclear technology!
This is where you embarrass yourself for ten posts insisting that my comment was REAL SERIOUS!
God, you're fu
cking stupid when you get all ideological and just start knee-jerk screaming about the Democrats without having a fu
cking clue what you're talking about. Don't you ever just take a deep breath and look into something before the yelling starts?
