What truth do Libs not want getting out that they are willing to shut the government down over Solyndra?

Libs are willing to shut the entire government down over 100 million dollars that the GOP proposes giving for disaster relief rather than continuing the funding of scandal ridden pro-Obama company of Solyndra

The House Republican leadership is contemplating axing the remaining $100 million from the loan program that granted a $535 million loan guarantee to the now-bankrupt Solyndra solar company -- in an attempt to win support from the 48 House Republicans who voted against the stop-gap funding bill Wednesday night.

Cuts in the loan program, they said, would offset disaster relief funding

    Green jobs is the Dem's flagship & solyndra isn't the only business in on the ponzi scheme as describe by a spanish economist. Another solar panel company receive 10 million & hired 6 workers to manufacture rooftop solar panel. But since the cost of manufacture is so high that government steps in to bribe or pay Buyers (well to do or very rich people) to buy solar panel with tax payers money. It's the same with chevy volt & tesla motors in which the rich or very rich buyers who can afford to buy these so called green products are being subsidies or bribed with tax payers money so they can buy it very cheaply. (Batteries, Mercury, Rubber insulators, Coolants, Plastics, Lubricants, & chemical inhibitors are not Green).

    Green jobs aren't for the poor or unemployed, but for the rich, cronies, unions & even colleges to satisfy their self righteous ego & pocket where everyone are forced to buy a product they didn't buy though their taxes. People didn't voluntarily put their money in & receive interest in return as in investment where they can full out anytime they feel their investment are going sour.

    Training people to earn dozens of certificates to fill jobs that doesn't exist only creates jobs for the administration & staff who gets funding to train people on jobs that will never be filled. Subsidies, Grants, & the dream act works in the same manner of bailouts, subsidies, tax credits & entitlements for the dept. of education which is to keep the demand for education high by by artificially creating demand for education for citizens, legal or illegals that don't really care much for the academics, but the piece of paper. That leads to dumbing down education where more than half of those enrolled aren't serious about school work, labs, attendants, & exams stealing & plagiarizing other people's work that are being moved along & passed without really earning it. Schools needs to keep enrollment high without reducing tuition cost, salaries, & profit.

    School trends are guaranteeing students to pass, earn a diploma or degree no matter how little they contributed or participated. Only 20% or less will do all their homework, lab, & class work on their own. Giving credit to the entire class when only 2 or 3 person were responsible for the entire work rewards corrupt behavior. Giving the answers on class work quizzes & exams doesn't encourage working & studying to earn it. Giving everybody full credit for the midterm grades when 70% - 80% hasn't turned in homework, classwork, lab, quiz, & exam just so the students don't get dropped & the teacher don't get reprimanded by the Dean who may or may not encourage passing off students as to not loose students, school funding, or tuition & grants for tuition. Bell Curves has to go. Those who excels & work hard on their own shouldn't be punished with lowering the standards of achievement.

    Cheats will copy other peoples work & some will take it without the owners knowledge, when naive instructors return turned in class work, lab, homework, & exam. Exam & quiz cheaters intermittently & deliverately skip exam so that they can acquire info on what is asked on the exam when they make it up, there shouldn't be make ups.

    Don't return homework till the last week before the finals. Divi up credit for the number of people plagiarizing 50% each for 2 people, 25% each for 4 people. Deduct 10% each day or week for late work, & only accept it till the 3rd-5th day in a daily class or 3rd week in a weekly class. Deadlines are deadlines, to miss is to suffer the consequence of deduction or 0 credit.

    Entrance exams for middle schools should not be preschool level, & entrance exams on trade school colleges should not be Middle school level only 15 to 20 questions.

    Schools should be more like Japan, where public school is available only from elementary & middle school. Where high schools are entirely privatize, with a rigorous entrance exam to challenge those who dares to get an education. I'd like to think the entrance exams, midterms & finals are like a postal exam where questionnaires are serialized with 150 questions or more or 50 questions each subject a student has chosen with everyone being monitored by the school staff or administration. Student per table of different class & subjects intermittently seated. Questioners of quiz & exams should be randomly numbered in different sequence from 3 to 5 ways of serialization so not all examinees have their questions numbered in the same sequence. Values themselves should be different for each examinee as long as the formula, subject & topic are the same.

    One earning a GED/Diploma in an independent study program can be trusted to have done all work on their own for they individually do their own work as not everyone are taking the same subject.

    Source(s): The incumbent & inner circles of billionaire cronies (worth 1k-47k more than millionaires) talks high & mighty about the very affluent to pay their share to sell the image of their self righteousness & gladly take all subsidies, tax credits, & deduction they can get/write off cause it won't be them who will pay for it, but everyone especially the consumers with a chance to eliminate, hinder success, & gobble up smaller efficient competitors bellow the top 10 or outside the inner circle. http://readingeagle.com/article.aspx?id=301524 Motorola get tax credits to stay due to a 66% income tax hike. http://readingeagle.com/article.aspx?id=306254 http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/general-electric-pa...

    ONCE AGAIN.... THE 100 mill. IS NOT A LOAN TO SOLYNDRA...

    you asked this question already and asked someone to post proof that it is not a loan to solyndra..

    I answered this once, but obviously you lack reading comprehension skills or you CHOOSE to ignore the truth..

    so here goes: a link to an article that says the 100 mill is a cut to a loan program not cuts to a loan for solyndra.

    http://news.yahoo.com/senate-blocks-house-disaster...

    The bill the House approved Friday morning contained just one change — an additional $100 million in savings from cutting a second Energy Department loan program, this one aimed at sparking new energy technologies.

    That is the same program that financed a $528 million federal loan to Solyndra Inc., the California solar panel maker that won praise from President Barack Obama

    same PROGRAM NOT A DIRECT LOAN.....

    This is getting to be a real crutch for Republicans isn't this?

    Cuts in those Bush era loan guarantee programs will not cover a quarter of the costs of just Irene alone so lets toss that argument out in the trash, where it belongs.

    That's without going into the costs of the Midwest tornadoes, the fires in Texas and their drought, the fires in New Mexico, and the earthquake in the Mid Atlantic.

    And more to come. Never before in our history have we demanded that disaster relief for our people be tied to cuts in programs, and if you're honest, you'll see that many other programs are on their chopping block too, many of them the same ones they tried to ram down our throats last time they dug in their heels, and look how great that turned out...our credit rating went down.

    Are they crazy to want more?

    The Solyndra money has already been allocated and spent unfortunately. The only answer to that is to attempt to recover some of the loan.

    As for your suggestion for disaster relief, how come all of a sudden the republicans are for earthquake disaster relief? Oh, I know, ALL of that money is going to Eric Cantor's (R) district in Virginia.

    And nothing for anyone else....z

    What exactly DO YOU think will happen Mr. Economics. You act as though the other 33% in UNPAID liabilities would just disappear. Except... they wouldn't. So you cap the debt.... and you still have to pay for CURRENT debts including entitlements (that's why they are CALLED entitlements... because the U.S. created a LEGAL right to receive them). So.... it WOULD cause defaults..... because there is simply not enough money to go around. And Treasury defaults destroys confidence.... which destroys ABILITY to get credit. So.... until your REPUBLICAN friends in the House... put forth a BALANCED BUDGET... just SHUT UP.... because you don't have a clue what you are talking about. See the recent history of Iceland for a good example of what happens when you lose the ability to REFINANCE debt. It isn't good sonny.

    You are talking about two different issues, but since you brought up Solyndra, isn't it interesting that Solyndra was one of 16 companies that were eligible for billions of dollars in loans through the Energy Policy Act of 2005, passed by a GOP congress and signed into law by George Bush?

    You aren't paying attention. The 100 million isn't for a bankrupt company. It is to fund hundreds of other jobs....high paying jobs that YOUR OWN PARTY has begged to fund recently.

    http://www.washingtonmonthly.com/political-animal/...

    You want democrats to agree to a bill that slashes money to fund jobs that even republicans want funded, while the bill provides inadequate funding for FEMA and forces families to wait for spending cuts before receiving aid. Why do you abhor these disaster victims, when your own party absolutely supported FEMA funding for every other disaster victim prior to Obama.

    Funding disaster relief should be “tied” to nothing. There should be ZERO conditions on it, as has been the case in the past.

    Republicans just can’t help themselves, though.
