Rep. Markey: US Like "Communists" With Nuclear Energy

"To that extent we're like China, like a Communist country which has the taxpayers, the government that guarantees a private sector endeavor. We are a capitalist country. That's what separates us from France, that's what separates us from China. We are capitalists. Wall Street walked away from nuclear power because it's a bad investment. Move toward natural gas, wind, solar. They have walked away for 36 years. Now the Republicans are saying, 'let's use taxpayer money' like what happened with General Motors, with the TARP and financial industry. Let's use the taxpayers as a way of propping up an industry that wall street has been walking away from," Rep. Ed Markey (D-MA) told MSNBC.
