Something funny, Barack?
During his interview today by Denver reporter Kyle Clark, President Obama was asked about the failure of Colorado-based Abound Solar, a green energy company that received a $400 million federal loan guarantee. Abound Solar declared bankruptcy this past June and is currently under investigation. For some reason, the president finds that amusing:
Some of [the green energy companies] have failed but the vast majority of them are pushing us forward into a clean energy direction. And that’s good for Colorado and good for the country.
So, basically, the president thinks we should just shut up and eat our peas while he has a good chuckle.
American taxpayers are out $68 million, Mr. President. We’re not laughing.
