The $535 million loss on Obama’s flagship company supported by the DOE is just the beginning. It is only 2.5% of the DOE loan portfolio. Two others on this list are already gone. Abound and Solo Power. Bringing the total dollars lost just  from this list to over a billion.

Remember, this is just solar and, just loans made under the great brain, Dr. Chu. He has been throwing billions at all forms of green energy.

Write your Congressman and demand he look into the total amount of losses the DOE has incurred from day one. It’s not in any data bank I can find.

We know about the billions lost in ethanol subsidies. But, the DOE has been very active in this are with several failures in cellulose. Algae is another area where the DOE has incurred losses.

If you include the budget for the DOE since inception, plus the losses, it’s many, many billions squandered. 

When does this stop and who stops it?

Not Obama, he took an $80,000 campaign contribution from the founders of Solyndra and parlayed that into a $535 billion loss for taxpayers. He had at least 20 visits to the White House from those founders. He used the company as a platform to ballyhoo green energy jobs. Now the FBI is looking into fraud by those visitors of Obama’s. 

The Tea Party Freshmen need to take this up and deliver the truth to the public. It’s not coming from anyone else.
