Wall Street Journal likes Pompeo’s stand on wind

turbinetractorA Wall Street Journal editorial arguing for expiration of the wind production tax credit included praise for the 4th District’s congressman. “One admirable exception to the Wind Belt political rule is Kansas Rep. Mike Pompeo, who keeps reminding fellow Republicans that they claim to oppose corporate welfare,” the editorial board said, noting Pompeo had collected 52 House signatures on a letter arguing to end the tax credit. The editorial called the 20-year-old credit “so generous relative to the wholesale price of electricity that it is distorting energy investment.”
