Biden Pushes Solar Panel Financing

This will cause major head explosions among the bat-shit class:
The solar financing plan that originated in Berkeley [California] in 2007 will become a national model, Vice President Joe Biden said Monday.

Biden's program, known as Recovery Through Retrofit, creates a framework for cities, counties and states to set up tax districts that allow residential and business property owners to install solar panels and make other energy improvements, repaying the investment over a 20-year property tax assessment.
Of course, if it had been George W. Bush proposing such a plan in, say, Braddock, Texas, the plan would be well received among the fascist right.

But by Vice-President Biden!? In Berkeley !!!??
