Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz grilled Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel on his department's budget during a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing:

"The Department of Defense continues to spend billions of dollars unnecessarily on alternative energy research programs at DoD. The Navy recently spent $170 Million on algae fuel, that costs four times as much as regular fuel," Cruz said.

He continued by describing other similar projects in contrast to cuts in the funding for additional combat troops in the United States' armed services.

one more reason why I REALLY, REALLY like Ted Cruz!  For shame McCain and others who have not tried to stop this insanity.

That is the proper place, and use, for Cruz' loose-cannon act.
