Meet An Obama "Winner"

If there was one billionaire more excited than George Soros at President Obama's re-election, it was Elon Musk.

The South African born Musk has been a triple recipient of Obama's "green" government investment schemes and the president's re-election appears to keep the taxpayer spigots open for the crony capitalist.

 

Musk is a three-time winner in the Obama taxpayer giveaways to his cronies and campaign contributors. 

 

Musk's Tesla Motors turned a $465 million loan guarantee from the Department of Energy into a $600 million personal windfall in profits when the company went public.  Musk used the loan to lobby Congress for more largess, spending $480,000 from 2007 to 2011 on lobbying Congress, the White House, EPA and DOE on climate and energy issues, the Advanced Technology Vehicles Manufacturing loan program, the Promoting Electric Vehicles Act, and the Recovery Act.

 

After giving thousands of dollars to the President and the political parties, Musk's company Space-X won $440 million in grants from NASA to design the next American spacecraft capable of launching humans into space.

 

Refusing to quit while he is ahead, Musk has entered the failing solar space.  SolarCity, another of Musk's companies living of the taxpayers, has filed for an IPO as Musk tries to replicate his get rich scheme.  But recent filings appear to put a bump in the road for SolarCity. 

 

The company, which awarded the company a $275 million loan guarantee, received a subpoena in July from the Office of the Inspector General of the U.S. Department of Treasury to determine whether the company was part of a scam to inaccurately stated the fair-market value of their PV systems when applying for funds under the Treasury's Section 1603 cash-grant program.

 

In addition to fleecing the taxpayers to pad his wallet, it appears that Musk's Tesla Motors is also coming under scrutiny. Tesla's own SEC reports that the battery could be unsafe and catch on fire.

 

The green industry is a racket that hurts taxpayers and makes Obama's cronies rich.  Unless Congress acts, we will likely endure another four years of bailouts, handouts and giveaways to the president's supporters.

 

It's time for conservatives to demand separation of business and state and it should start with Elon Musk.

And 'DUMBELL' OBAMA, said plain as day... EEEHHHPP, your electricity costs, under my plan, WILL NECESSARILY, GO UP! And because of regulations, it will beharder to open up new coal mines, because they will be regulated more, than those in existance, and those will be shut down over time!!!' (or near that said).

  • EVERYONE LISTEN UP-----A Leopard does not change his spots!

    We have seen 4 years of Obama and He is unable to morph into something else. We will have another 4 years of: If he doesn't get his own way he will use the executive branch to declare his demand. Tom Daschel stated it best; "Don't expect a personality change with Obama". Its so much easier to deal with him then before. the first 4 years were a dry-run now we need to be aware and head him off at the pass and NOT allow him to do as he wishes. I say this to the  GOP--- If they are listening.

  • They should take this mony they seize from thses CRIMINALS and put it back into programs like SS and Medicare that they took it from.

  • Our Government should SEIZE all of the peoples funds who have benifited from the  FRAUDULANT IMPOSTER  in the White House because he never had ANY AUTHORITY to have SIGNED anything or GIVEN anything (Solyndra and others)whatsoever. And HE WILL BE IMPEACHED!
