Cancel the subsidy to USEC

Cancel by legislation and adminstative action, all subsidies to USEC. Eliminate the obvious subsidies, and the hidden ones, like sweetheart deals. USEC was supposed to be in the Private sector, not a continual drag on the body politic.

 

Don't make DOE the "bleeding horse" that keeps getting bled to keep USEC in good shape.
