Energy Secretary Steven Chu Defends Solyndra
This nonsense over Solyndra continues. Conservative idiots consistently forget the following:
1. Solyndra failed because the cost of solar panels went down across the industry, which is a net plus for everybody.
2. The government backs alternative energy businesses precisely because they are too risky for the private sector, therefore, by definition, some should fail.
3. The federal Government has pissed away trillions in tax breaks, subsidies and giveaways to the oil and gas industries for decades and conservatives don’t have any problem with this.
4. Half a billion dollars is 25% of what one B2 Bomber costs, which many experts say was unneeded, thus proving conservatives don’t really care about government spending or waste; they only care about making cheap shot attacks against Democrats.
