Fact is not 90 billion has been spent.<quoted text>The White House breaks down the $90 billion on green energy projects in the stimulus bill like this:
$29 billion for energy efficiency, including $5 billion for improvements in the homes and apartments of low-income households
$21 billion for renewable electricity generation, including wind turbines and solar panels
$10 billion for grid modernization, including millions of “smart meters” that read themselves, eliminating the need for meter readers
$6 billion to help establish factories to make batteries for electric cars and other components of advanced vehicles
$18 billion for fast trains
$3 billion for research and development into capturing and sequestering carbon dioxide
$3 billion for job training and scientific advances in green energy
about $2 billion to help build wind turbines, solar panels and similar “green” products
Some of this are loan guarantees & loans that get paid back.
Which of these does Romney not support?
Of the twenty of projects supported only 4 companies have gone bankrupt or out of business. Not all of them.
The energy efficiency program was very successful. It created jobs & saved many small businesses from failing while saving people money in energy costs and reducing the strain on our energy supplies. Wow, that sounds like a great program but Romney called that a failure.
And coal. Romney said he loves coal but now that was a failure too.(Romney used to hate coal as Governor & even marched with those wanting to close the coal fired generation plant because he did not support creating jobs through industries that kill people.)
Romney implied the 90 billion was wasteful, even though his record supported these very same things.
That is lie.
Romney is a liar.
