I read the whole article as well as several others.
"The Energy Policy Act of 2005, which passed under the Bush administration, authorized the Department of Energy to issue loan guarantees for projects that avoided, reduced or sequestered greenhouse gas emissions. But no new nuclear loan guarantees have been issued since that time."
Bush laid the means but didn't make any commitment to nuclear energy. This is the first commitment the Feds have made for nuclear power plants in MANY years.
I was interested in Plow's reaction because of his rants about the "liberals" and nuclear power plants and now Obama..................................
Not everything is partisan. Sometimes "you" have to evaluate things for what they are. IMO, increasing our nuclear power production is a good thing no matter who does it.
