You are missing the main points.<quoted text> Green Energy? Ahhh... so that's ANOTHER magic hopey-changey disappearance act of Obama's Stimulus Extravaganza...
That TARP ($737 billion) was the bail-out passed by Bush.
And ARRA ($831 billion) was the bail-out passed by Obama.
Of ARRA's $831 billion, only $27.2 billion went to green energy projects or 3.2%.
Some of that 3.2% was spent on boondoggles, I'll admit. But you were wrong in suggesting a major part of ARRA funding went in this direction.
