    Even Breitbart News is calling this the "GOP Solyndra." As I'm sure we all remember, the GOP were on President Obama's case because Solyndra received federal funding before going bankrupt.

    But while Boehner said in 2011 he believed "for the federal government to be out there picking one company over another, one type of energy source over another.. is wrong," he has continued to seek federal funds for his home state's USEC.

    Republicans are hypocrites. I'm sure Riddler, or some other conservaposse member, will say they are against subsidies, but they are lying, because they obviously support politicians who subsidize dirty energy with taxpayer dollars.

    isn't this more to do with 'lack of regulations' than anything?
