<quoted text>So far, 34 companies that were offered federal support from taxpayers are faltering — either having gone bankrupt or laying off workers or heading for bankruptcy. This list includes only those companies that received federal money from the Obama Administration’s Department of Energy and other agencies. The amount of money indicated does not reflect how much was actually received or spent but how much was offered. The amount also does not include other state, local, and federal tax credits and subsidies, which push the amount of money these companies have received from taxpayers even higher.

If we use your numbers, what are 34 companies out of 1300 percentage wise?

Let's make this easy - 130 companies would be 10%- your talking about 34 - which knocks your theory down to just 2% failure rate.

Any more questions?
