Why is this money being given to the indian tribes when they do not pay into the system? If they want to be a sovereign nation, then let them be their own nation. If they want to be part of our system, then treat them just like everyone else. This having it both ways, of not paying in, but getting benefits from it has to stop.

This is like Christmas (no offense intended to muslims, jews, etc)! "FREE" money coming from the federal government. This money was not taken from anyone, and will never have to be repaid! This is fantastic!!!

Interesting that of the items that have to be reported, Return on investment is not one of them. Does it make sense economically?, don't worry, we don't care...

Indians do pay into the system. They pay federal income tax like everone else does.

You people will say the sky is cloudy on a sunny day. yes, it is our tax dollars, so why shouldn't it come back to our state? Do you really think projects that reduce energy costs for "governments," that have to TAX us to pay their energy bills, is bad???? What would you rather the alternative? Raising taxes to pay the ever higher energy costs, and wrecking the planet that much faster? If you want a piece of the "boondoggle" go ahead and get one of the jobs that will be actually be created out of this work! Come on people, use the brains God, or evolution, gave you, it's only been 4.2 billions years in the making!
