    Car Company Gets U.S. Loan, Builds Cars In Finland - ABC News

    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.

    Tell me how wonderful he is again. I forget.

    Much of the infrastructure part will be for US jobs.

    But quite a bit of it will go for foreign steel and materials since we are no longer capable of making the things we need.

    However giving corporations pork for jobs is often giving money to foreign interests since we ahve eagerly sold off much of our country to foreign interests.
