    Problem is the cars cost 100k each and will be built overseas netting us NO JOBS FOR THE INVESTMENT.

    Not Again: Stimulus Money Went to Car Company...in Finland - Kate Hicks

    529 million down the toilet yet again. But hey its more important than hiring cops or teachers right? Lol yet Obama wants to lecture the gop on priorities. And don't forget we also gave a half billion to Tesla overseas.

    Dunno but 100k for an electric car seems kinda nuts. Not too much demand for that if you ask me.

    They say they have "future" plans to open a plant here but it was not required to obtain the money.

    It's cheaper to build them in Finland without having to pay union wages!

    This guy just loves to whip out that checkbook....
    Every couple of minutes he's gotta be throwing that cash around.
    Only in our case....

    WE DON'T HAVE ANY FUCKING MONEY....WE BORROW $.40 ON EVERY DOLLAR SPENT

    You guys - the fact that it is overseas is not the biggest problem
    The outrage here should be that we have yet another example of where this administration has willfully threw taxpayer money down the drain for political reasons.

    Look...between these two companies - over $1 Billion was loaned.
    Company #1 - has only built 40 cars...FORTY CARS!!!!!!!!!!!
    Company #2 - Tesla has been bleeding money from day one and is fully expected to go belly up without a constant feeding of public money.

    THIS - is the outrage.

    Absolutely, and don't forget the fact that it hasn't benefited the American taxpayer in any fashion.

    I have heard that Al Gore is tied to it also but I'm unsure of the facts about his involvement.

    I doubt they even know. The are more concerned with making the rich look evil than to be bothered with facts or stats.
