Perlmutter Watch 5-29-09

My Congressman, Ed Perlmutter (D-CO), has re-introduced his “GREEN Act [which] provides incentives to lenders and financial institutions to provide lower interest loans and other benefits to consumers, who build, buy or remodel their homes and businesses to improve their energy efficiency and use of alternative energy” (“Perlmutter Re-Introduces Green Resources for Energy Efficient Neighborhoods (GREEN) Act for Affordable Mortgages“).

Under which of powers that the Constitution gives to Congress does this fall?  How much will it cost taxpayers?  Why do we need to improve energy efficiency when we have access to plenty of oil in the United States?

If individuals and organizations want to “improve their energy efficiency and use of alternative energy,” I have no objection–as long as they pay for it and the federal government isn’t involved.

The following organizations, which I would classify as conservative, all rate members of Congress on issues that they, the organizations, consider to be most important:

Why Is Ed Perlmutter Using Tax Money To Aid Financial Institutions?

Filed under: Perlmutter Watch — Sofie @ 4:48 pm

As Ben DeGrow at Mount Virtus wrote last week, Representative Ed Perlmutter (D) of Colorado’s 7th Congressional District sent out a full-color advertisement to his constituents bragging about his accomplishments.

Ed, as he was referred to throughout the ad, was particularly proud of having helped secure more than $53 million  to “rehabilitate foreclosed homes in our area”:

Colorado State Program – $34,013,566
Adams County – $4,600, 211
City of Aurora – $4,474, 097
City of Colorado Springs – $3,904,989
City and County of Denver – $6,060, 170

NOTE:  None of Colorado Springs and little of Denver is in Ed’s district.  However, a large part of Jefferson County, which is not included, is in the district.

Ed, instead of using taxpayers’ money to rehabilitate foreclosed homes to help the financial institutions that now own them make more money selling them, why don’t you cut taxes to help those of us who are actually paying our rent or mortgage every month?
