Obama’s Eco-Scam A123 Systems Goes Bankrupt, Hits Taxpayer Jackpot

The whole  “green energy” crap is nothing less than an abuse of power. It’s all about control of energy resources, using tax dollars for government-created eco-scams, then bailing out the failures with more tax dollars.

From Michelle Malkin.com

Last month Michelle wrote about A123 Systems declaring bankruptcy. A123 was one of the many “clean energy grant” recipients that ended up going under and taking a pile of taxpayer cash with it — a pile that was made even bigger on its final day. In a demonstration of the kind of diligence we’ve come to expect from this administration, the Department of Energy gave A123 Systems a nearly million dollar payment on the same day the company declared bankruptcy:

“The company, which makes lithium ion batteries for electric cars, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection last month after a rescue deal with Chinese auto parts supplier Wanxiang Group fell apart.

That same day, October 16, A123 received a $946,830 payment as part of its $249 million clean energy grant from the Energy Department, the company said in a letter, obtained by Reuters, to Republican Senators John Thune and Chuck Grassley.

In the letter, dated November 14, A123 said the October payment was the most recent disbursement it had received from the government, with an additional $115.8 million still outstanding on the grant.

And this little gem from 2009 is another part to the story: Chrysler selects A123Systems for EV vehicles.

Yeah, that Chrysler.  One half of 2/3rds of the auto industry that he bailed out and took over.

Forward.
