"Instead of distorting the playing field, the government should be ensuring that it remains level. The same policies that will open access to land for oil, gas, and coal development can also open access for the construction of wind, solar, and hydropower facilities. Strengthening and streamlining regulations and permitting processes will benefit the development of both traditional and alternative energy sources, and encourage the use of a diverse range of fuels including natural gas in transportation. Instead of defining success as providing enough subsidies for an uncompetitive technology to survive in the market, success should be defined as eliminating any barriers that might prevent the best technologies from succeeding on their own."

Wow. More double talk from the master. The fact is that the majority of subsidies in the USA go to SUCCESSFUL business, such as

1: The Military/Industrial Complex (for 'defense spending')
2: The oil industry (which recieves about $50B in subsidies despite massive profits.
3: The farm industry (in farm subsidies for low nutrition crops such as maize, wheat, oilseeds, etc)

All of this driven by back room deals to provide 're-election spending' in return for public money.
