    Yet another in a long line of "green" failures, and another 150 million taxpayer dollars go's up in smoke. I wonder how much got back to ol Obama?


    President Obama touted it in 2010 as evidence "manufacturing jobs are coming back to the United States,” but two years later, a Michigan hybrid battery plant built with $150 million in taxpayer funds is putting workers on furlough before a single battery has been produced.
