"And, unfortunately, nuclear energy isn't safe or clean and it's too costly for the nation."

This is utter BS. Nuclear naval aircraft carrier have been all over this world with no issue what so ever. Ever wonder why we don't build our nuclear reactors offshore? If there's a problem we simply sink them.

The only reason I can think of is it'll take money out of the rich oil compny owners pockets.

Even though the department hasn’t built a new nuclear weapon for 20 years, its weapons complex is spending at rates comparable to that during the height of the nuclear arms race in the 1950s.

Hey, we're busy dismantling ~200, or so, weapons every year. In the 80's & 90's we dismantled 1500-2000 year but now we're just so much more "safer" (aka, Risk Averse).
