  1. Savannah River Nuclear Power Plant?!? Did not know that Savannah River Site and Vogtle Nuclear Power Plant were merged together yesterday. Our federal government/The White House fact checkers at work.

  2. I imagine the White House will need to appoint someone to be the liaison between the administration and the officials here in Augusta. I wonder if a former mayor would be a good choice for this?

  3. Everything Joe Biden does destroys a portion of our economy and our financial future. I bet he will put Hunter in charge of dispensing the debt increasing funds. How can the Executive Branch of Govt. simply send us further in debt without the expenses being part of the federal budget approved by Congress?

  4. I’ve always used the ” Now Hiring ” / “help wanted” ads as a pathway to jobs that I wanted.
    Of course being a life long government sponge & never having done an honest days work in his life, I can understand the disconnect that applies in Joe’s case.
    Obama was right !
    ” never underestimate Joe’s ability to fudge things up ” ( Obama )
    But he didn’t say fudge .
    And that’s not hyperbole

  5. I find it very interesting that unconscious Joe, a new BIG TIME GREENIE, would permit our great state that has grown it’s guaranteed nuclear power capability to be on his list to get anything! BUT… as several note above, that perhaps no one in democrat Washington, even has a clue about this red state! Guaranteed electric power and very limited union power is what attracts big and small industry to Georgia and the Southeast in general!!

  6. As a supporter of the Biden Administration president Joe Biden’s own words this is a big effing deal for Augusta! This initiative could bring in billions in private investment, and thousands of Union jobs.
