Obama’s Taxes and Regulations Have Killed Even Green Jobs – and His Reelection

For all the left wing talk about green jobs and technology, and the billions and billions “invested” in the government sanctioned companies, how ironic it is that this will be the reason that President Obama is retired after one term.

It has been easy for the greenie-weenies to scam Obama. He is willing, first and foremost. All they need is a cool sounding product that is wind or sun centric and a paper plan to show how they will create lots and lots of “green” jobs.

Solynda, an Obama – Biden poster child has gone bankrupt after soaking taxpayers for hundreds of millions of dollars in exchange for a measly $137K in donations to the Obama Campaign in 2008. Not a bad return on investment, and completely in line with the Chicago “Pay for Play” rules this Administration follows. Of course, simply knowing somebody works as well.

But as has been the case for most of these ill-advised soaking of taxpayers, they blame China for underselling them. But it should be noted that while Chinese companies do get some government assistance, Solynda did as well.

Another “shining” example of the Obama green ideology was Evergreen Solar in Massachusetts, who like filed bankruptcy, blaming the Chinese as well.

One thing that free market advocates know is that if a product has market viability, government “investment” is not required.

All that is required is that a product be priced to have value to it’s buyers. Of course, the fact that the Obama Administration has pushed unions down the jobs sector’s collective throats is not going to price goods very well in a free market. Also Health Care Mandates and forced coverages thanks to ObamaCare also increase costs (and price of the product).

And then there are the jobs killing regulations that are killing all businesses, not just the green ones. And with the favorable treatment of green jobs unable to compete in spite of massive tax dollars being infused into green companies, it is pretty clear that the market conditions created by Obama are a disadvantage to all business, even his fair haired green ones.

When a company produces light bulbs that cost $127 for 100 Watts and solar panels at double the cost of their Chinese competitors, it becomes painfully clear that “cheap” Chinese labor is going to allow foreign based companies a huge advantage. And that gulf is widened by the “hidden” cost of regulations and taxes. And items like ObamaCare have added a good bit to the cost of producing goods in the United States.

The bottom line is that if an American Company receiving massive aid and assistance is still unable to compete with foreign countries, the Obama Administration has created an environment that is so toxic to business that America has regulated herself out of the competitive marketplace.

And the trillions of borrowed dollars poured into these green companies going for naught, Obama has squandered America’s treasure on unsustainable “green” jobs doomed to failure over sustainable jobs in a sector to which this president is ideologically opposed.

And we have no more money.

Obama blew America’s money on scam projects that never materialized instead of tried and true companies that know how to produce jobs.

And Obama’s reelection chances were tied to the green jobs that never materialized.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
