Senate Roll Call 734 on 2011 Senate Bill 556
More of the same crony Capitalism where government picks the winners and losers. Expensive, unfair, foolish, wasteful and arrogant.
No more subsidies of our tax dollars!!! Let the free market determine the winners and losers not a bunch of politicians playing favoritism with no knowledge of what does and does not work. . .
Would this be similar to the Solyndra give-away? You give them millions of dollars and then they contribute to your political campaigns?
