Feds ignore rules and use stimulus cash to buy Chinese solar panels




Government officials blame unfair competition from China for the collapse of solar panel manufacturer Solyndra, but such concerns didn’t stop the federal government from breaking stimulus program rules to use Chinese solar panels atop a federal building housing the offices of a senator, congressman and several agencies.

So lemme get this straight the feds are whining about "unfair trade practices" wasted a few billion on failed green companies like Solyndra, but here we go again it is someone else's fault.

Par for the course.


Even the contractor questioned whether Chinese-made panels could be used under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, the stimulus program that mandated use of U.S.-made products.

Think of all the Chinese trinkets we can buy with QE3 passed? I am convinced, the US is destroying itself and the world economy so that the UN is the only super power. Otherwise it makes no sense that they would allow printing of 80 billion dollars a month by the fed with zero percent interest. Ron Paul called it and time will prove him correct, we will see another worse recession/depression.

I hope NEO, that you don't trust Romney to do any better though. He loooves that little made in China sticker.

Subsidizing gas, drilling for more oil would have been much better.
