If you haven't heard of the Tides Center or the Tides Foundation,you certainly will be soon.These far left non-profit groups are aligned with George Soros' OSI group and the Apollo Alliance and they are creating the blueprints for Obama and Congress on the stimulus,cap and trade and healthcare reform.
This is not an opinion,it's fact.Check it out yourself.The Apollo Economic Recovery Act(AERA) is the stimulus blueprint except that Congress took the recommendations and allotted even more money than was suggested.Here is the bulletin from the Apollo website.
Apollo Economic Recovery Act — News Release
Proposed Apollo Economic Recovery Act Will Yield 650,000 Green-Collar Jobs
WASHINGTON, Dec. 6 — The Apollo Alliance, a national coalition of business, labor, environmental and community leaders, today proposed a comprehensive quick start, clean energy economic recovery strategy to immediately create or retain 650,000 direct green-collar jobs and an additional 1.3 million indirect jobs in communities across the country.
The Alliance’s proposed Apollo Economic Recovery Act responds directly to President-elect Barack Obama’s call last week for a “big stimulus package” in January to “jolt” the economy and “lay the groundwork for long- term, sustained economic growth.”
“With a new president and Congress taking office in January, we have a tremendous opportunity to put America on the path to economic recovery while also moving us toward climate stability and energy security,” said Apollo Alliance Chairman Phil Angelides. “Now is the time to turn big ideas into reality - to look forward to bold solutions.”

Apollo Economic Recovery Act — The Full Proposal
Data Points: Economic Recovery Act Outcomes For Clean Energy Job Creation and Investment
The New Apollo Program
A critical component of any proposal to revive the economy, the Apollo Economic Recovery Act calls for a one-year, $50 billion investment to restore America’s economic strength while ending our nation’s reliance on foreign oil and speeding our transition to a new, more prosperous clean energy economy.
The Alliance’s proposal calls for immediate targeted federal investments next year to improve energy efficiency in buildings, advance federal clean energy tax credits, expand home weatherization programs, modernize the transmission grid, sharply increase federal investments in rapid transit, and repair roads and bridges.
Founded In New Apollo Program ProposalsThe Apollo Economic Recovery Act accelerates investments called for in The New Apollo Program, a comprehensive national clean energy economic development strategy released this fall in communities across the nation and supported by over 50 major U.S. business, labor, environmental and community organizations.
The New Apollo Program calls for a 10-year, $500 billion program of federal investment to create 5 million jobs while helping to solve the climate crisis, the energy crisis, and the economic crisis facing the nation. The program outlines the need for a sweeping set of actions - major commitments to energy efficiency, dramatic increases in the use of renewable energy, a reinvigorated manufacturing base for advanced fuel-efficient vehicles - to put Americans to work. It is intended to renew the nation’s commitment to innovation, research and development, science, and work force training and education. And it proposes a cap and invest system that puts a price on carbon, and generates the financial resources needed for America to make the transition to a clean energy economy. “The Apollo Economic Recovery Act is a first year down payment on building a clean energy, good jobs “made in America” economy as envisioned in The New Apollo Program. It is also an immediate shot in the arm to boost America’s economy and put our people back to work. We need to take steps now to support American businesses and workers so that they can set their feet firmly on the path to this new energy economy” said Mr. Angelides.
He called upon the president-elect and Congress to implement the Apollo Economic Recovery Act, which also will train at least 300,000 Americans to participate in the clean energy economy through workforce development, apprenticeship, service, and education programs.
