Solyndra, along with over a half-billion in taxpayer money, is officially down the drain. All that money is wasted and approximately 1,000 jobs are also gone. The POTUS' green job initiative is continuing to waste money. Over $17 billion of the allocated money for green job stimulus is gone and less than 4,000 jobs have been created.
Solyndra is just another example of how Obama continues to throw money at a problem with no tangible results to show for it. It is time for the green-job initiative to be shut down and the money allocated to it to find a more worthy outlet.
Thankfully, members of the Tea Party are not the only ones who see a need for money that funds programs like Solyndra to be pulled and put towards more useful programs. The Department of Labor's Inspector General has stated that the remaining funds given to the green-job initiative should be returned to the Treasury Department.
So either the Tea Party has infiltrated the Department of Labor, or they are spot on with one of their calls for action. With the IG's recommendation being less than 24 hours old, only time will tell if the POTUS' program will officially be shut down. If it is, the Tea Party Patriots will likely claim it a party victory.
