    TIME FOR GREEN SCISSORS

    Green Scissors 2011; Green Scissors 2011 identifies wasteful government subsidies that are damaging to the environment and could end up costing taxpayers more than $380 billion.
    August 24, 2011 (Friends of the Earth, Taxpayers for Common Sense, Public Citizen and The Heartland Institute via Green Scissors)

    "…[Green Scissors; Cutting Wasteful and Environmentally Harmful Spending] builds on last year’s report by advancing cuts that could potentially save taxpayers $380 billion or more over five years…[The] federal government can help protect our natural resources, reduce the growth of government spending, and make a significant dent in the national debt by eliminating harmful spending.

    "The Green Scissors report finds cuts in energy, agriculture, transportation, and land and water projects. Targets include massive giveaways of publicly-owned resources such as timber, oil and natural gas and minerals, poorly conceived road projects and a bevy of questionable Army Corps of Engineers water projects…"

    "[Ending] the following programs [could] save the United States…[1] $72,000,000,000 for general revenue transfers to the Highway Trust Fund…[2] $30,000,000,000 for crop insurance, and…[3]$4, 820,000,000 for Oil and Gas Royalty relief.

    "Friends of the Earth… Taxpayers for Common Sense…Public Citizen…and The Heartland Institute… have different missions and different views about the role of government, but Green Scissors represents some key areas where we all can agree."
