Welcome to the Crony States of America, if you’re politically well connected you to can receive mountains of government money. Did you donate to the Obama campaign? If so I may have some good news for you, you could already be qualified for billions of dollars of tax payer money:
With Energy Secretary Steven Chu set to testify Thursday before the House Energy and Commerce Committee about the government’s $573 million loan to failed solar panel maker Solyndra, an explosive new list of energy loan amounts to President Obama’s top fundraisers, bundlers, and supporters has been released by Breitbart editor Peter Schweizer, author of Throw Them All Out.
As the list reveals, 80 percent of all $20.5 billion in Department of Energy loans went to President Obama’s top donors. Furthermore, some of those dwarf in size those given to Obama bundler George Kaiser, owner of the now defunct Solyndra.
I’m sure the Obamabots will claim this is just a coincidence and that this outcome was obvious since the people donating to Obama’s campaign are obviously the smartest and most qualified companies in the alternative energy market. Of course those people are also mindless sheep who will jump whenever Dear Leader commands (not that mindless Republican shills are any better mind you).
A tip of the hat goes to Alan for this gem of government corruption.
