    Jobs dwindle during green power debate | Political Headlines | Comcast

    DENVER — An eerie quiet has settled over the Walker Components plant, which assembles custom cables for a global wind turbine company. Orders are down from earlier in the year and one-third of its employees have been laid off this year.

    The wind energy boom President Barack Obama touted as key to his energy strategy has hit a wall in an election-year dispute over taxpayer support for renewable energy.

    The green bubble is starting to fall apart. "How much longer can we fund things that are not cost-competitive?"

    Another Obama flop- but lets move forward . $3562723908.gif

    They dared to lay off employees while Obama is President?

    If it "feels" good, do it. Capitalism be damned, commerce be damned, profits be damned.

    Damn it must feel good to be a Liberal.
