Could the Obama regime do any more to try and destroy jobs in America? First they insist capital and effort be pushed towards silly projects like “green energy” which is also know by its street name of epic fail.
One of Obama’s pet projects has failed in a spectacular fashion and the GOP wants some answers.
From the Hill:
House Republicans are demanding White House paperwork related to a $535 million loan guarantee to a solar company that shut down this week.
The Republicans are probing the White House role in the 2009 federal loan guarantee to Solyndra Inc., a California solar panel manufacturing company that ceased operations and is filing for bankruptcy, resulting in 1,100 layoffs.
The shutdown is a bit of an embarrassment for the administration, as the company was the first selected to receive the loan guarantee under a stimulus-backed renewable energy program. President Obama visited the company just more than a year ago to tout White House green energy efforts.
Republican leaders of the Energy and Commerce Committee sent a letter to White House counsel Kathryn Ruemmler on Thursday seeking records of communication between the White House, Solyndra and its investors — including Democratic fundraiser George Kaiser.
Meanwhile, the Obama regime continues to make war on American workers and American companies. The Obama regime is even insisting that companies shed American workers and move some of their operations overseas. They are even raiding American companies to make the point. The story of the Obama regime’s war on Gibson Guitars is an American horror story.
From Fox News:
The dispute started in 2009, when federal agents raided the company over suspect wood shipments from Madagascar. Gibson took that case to court but has denounced the administration with a vengeance after agents returned late last month to raid several Gibson factories -- this time out of concern that Indian export laws had been violated.
Though some reports on the dispute have cited environmental concerns, court documents suggest the latest battle boils down to a simple, non-environmental question -- which country is working on the wood?
Gibson's CEO has said repeatedly that the only reason his company is in trouble is because U.S. workers are completing work on guitar fingerboards in the United States. In an interview earlier this week, CEO Henry Juszkiewicz claimed that the U.S. government even suggested Gibson's troubles would disappear if the company used foreign labor.
That’s great. The country produced no new jobs in August and the Obama regime is doing its best to make the second great depression even worse.
Just remember, the election is only 14 months away.
This is all part of "The Plan".
This guy does NOT want to create jobs...quite the opposite. He has no clue about economics...only Socialism.
The House can request all the records they want, it's the delivery of those records that, like a certain birth-certificate, is in question!
Stratocaster guitars are made by Fender, not Gibson. However, there are plenty of people that play Les Paul, SG and Flying V guitars which are made by Gibson.
