Increase taxes on fossil fuel, lower taxes on income,

It's been proven that increasing the cost of fossil fuels has no effect on consumption of fossil fuels, people still need to travel and need electricity to warm and power their homes and computers and business. What will happen is that it will take money away from other things, people will cut back on discretionary spending and other things to help pay for their fuel. This obviously keeps a damper on the economy and prevents growth and eventually prevents new innovations.

For several large IT project at the State agency level, I can safely say that the bidding process for an RFP is to the lowest bidder, not the best bidder. Also they make it easier for certain companies to be on the bidding process ie. cronyism. So really the state ends up with what it asks for. Most large IT project fail because of these reasons.
