    Seems like the only way to get a business going (or keep it going) today is to get help from Washington. That is, unless you’re in the nuclear business. While other industries are begging for taxpayer dollars, the nuclear industry is expanding at an impressive pace — without federal subsidies.

    Although no plants have been officially ordered yet, enough utilities are moving forward with plans to do so that companies that supply the components and services necessary to design, build and man those plants have begun expanding already.

    Ironically, one of the anti-nuke crowd’s favorite cracks against nuclear is that it’s too expensive to succeed without public funds. Yet their favorites, like wind and solar, seem utterly dependent on the government dole, while nuclear is going gangbusters.
