Americans have watched a Democrat Congress and a Democrat President, spend and spend and spend more and more of their tax dollars on companies that cannot seem to create a damn job in America. Everyone knows about Solyndra, and how over a half a billion of our hard earned dollars was given to the rich people who supported Obama. Now we have an “electric” car maker (didn’t we already have those at GM?) given more of our tax dollars – only to land up taking American jobs and money and abscond to Finland with both. If You Are An Unemployed American And You Are Not Angry At The Payoffs The Democrats Are Giving To Their Rich Friends, You Are Inhuman, or Brainwashed.
With the approval of the Obama administration, an electric car company that received a $529 million federal government loan guarantee is assembling its first line of cars in Finland, saying it could not find a facility in the United States capable of doing the work.
Vice President Joseph Biden heralded the Energy Department’s $529 million loan to the start-up electric car company called Fisker as a bright new path to thousands of American manufacturing jobs. But two years after the loan was announced, the job of assembling the flashy electric Fisker Karma sports car has been outsourced to Finland.
“There was no contract manufacturer in the U.S. that could actually produce our vehicle,” the car company’s founder and namesake told ABC News. “They don’t exist here.”
Henrik Fisker said the U.S. money so far has been spent on engineering and design work that stayed in the U.S., not on the 500 manufacturing jobs that went to a rural Finnish firm, Valmet Automotive.
“We’re not in the business of failing; we’re in the business of winning. So we make the right decision for the business,” Fisker said. “That’s why we went to Finland.”
So doing business in America brings failure? Does it now Mr. Fisker? You certainly thought America was fine for all of those dollars you and Joe Biden ripped off from people like me who get up at 5:30 every morning and go to work by 6:00, and not returning home before dark. We pay our taxes every year just so snakes in the grass like you get to live large off the American people. Barack Obama and the Democrats have taken crony capitalism to a level of spending and bailing out than anything I have seen in my lifetime, and/or have ever even read about happening. This type of corruption used to put people in jail, now the media wing of the Democrat Party lauds it and sings its praises because of a lie called global warming.
I am so angry, I can barely sit here and type, I have been screaming since 2008 for Bush to stop the spending, but I couldn’t have imagined it would get 100X worse. It was ignorant of me to not to understand that Democrats spent the better part of the 1900s taking us down this path to insolvency and are intent on finishing us off.
