Truth #15: Subsidizes Studies on Human Behavior
What the bill does: Authorizes “such sums as may be necessary” to research American energy consumption behavior. This taxpayer funded research is designed to identify potential energy savings, as well as to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, through changes in energy consumption habits. The research may also study the potential for altering consumer behavior, and increase public awareness of federal climate “adaptation” and “mitigation” programs. (H.R. 2454, Sec. 265, p. 561.)
What this means for Americans: At a time when the American people are least able to afford it, the Democrat Congress wants to spend taxpayer money researching human behavior. It doesn’t take a clinical study to figure out that the Democrats’ national energy tax will have a devastating impact on families and small businesses.
