Obama’s counterfeit concept: U.S. president’s fake-work make-work jobs scheme a real bust for taxpayers

By Ezra Levant ,Toronto Sun
A shocking new study by the U.S. government’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory shows the Obama administration’s $9-billion solar power program created just 910 long-term jobs.

That’s $9.8 million per job created.

Even if you add in all possible “indirect” jobs that could be attributed to this subsidy flurry, it still works out to $1.63 million in subsidies per job created, according to the report.

Just to be clear, this isn’t some taxpayers federation or Republican Party group writing this scathing review. This is the U.S. government itself.

That $9 billion was taxpayers’ money — wrung out of the hides of Americans with real jobs. Or, to be more accurate, it was borrowed by Obama, from the Chinese government, and will hang around the neck of taxpaying Americans like an unpaid $9-billion credit card debt.

How many jobs will that kill?

Why are Obama’s fake jobs — in counterfeit industries, like solar power and wind power, that could not exist without handouts — more important than real jobs for which there is a real demand in the economy? Read article

  1. McGuinty’s Green Energy Scam is as intentional as running over a cat with your car instead of putting on the brakes!
    He is intentionally trying to ruin Ontario, bring it to it’s knees and bankrupt the whole Province so that everyone will be at the mercy of the Government for hand outs!
    This is no mistake, no misguided agenda, it is McGuinty’s vision of what he thinks the world should look like…..he is following Agenda 21 blueprint to a “T”………
    Think about it. Literally thousands of science and health based reports proving beyond a doubt that IWT’s not only don’t work but cause huge health problems in people who live near them. IWT development ruins farm lands, communities, and of course financial stability of the Towns that host them.
    YET, they are still being forced down peoples throats against massive protests. No Government agency will even reply to these claims of harm and disaster let alone allow one single agency to even investigate the claims. Nothing has changed!
    Kangaroo courts are throwing out claims like WE were all crazies!
    McGuinty’s political life is ending but his legacy will live on for decades. His next life will be within the “Green Warm embrace” of the United Nations!

  2. Ontario? Real – or not real?
    Why Ontario citizens should get interested in American politics!
    The biggest election – in American history – November 2012

    In 2003, Mr. McGuinty asked – Secretary General of Organization of America (OAS)
    to lead a review of the province’s electricity sector

    Premiers in D.C. for governors meeting – February 19, 2010
    ‘We need to look for opportunities to support each other.’—Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty
    Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty said the meeting provides a good opportunity for premiers and governors to share ideas and embrace the importance of freer trade.

    “The most important thing we want to do is strengthen our relationships and our ties,” he said in Toronto.

    “The fact of the matter is that we both lead sub-national governments on both sides of the border, we both find ourselves governing in a time of tremendous economic constraint, and we need to remind each other that we need to look for opportunities to support each other, particularly through trade, instead of turning inwards.”

      • McGuinty belongs to a “Losers Club” that has basically screwed every single place up so bad during their “reign of terror” (governance) that they are literally hated by most reasonable people.
        Of course “you can’t insult an ignorant person” so I guess no matter how one describes this “buffoon” in the years to come, he will never allow the labels of being a total loser, stick to him.
        Look at Harris………………….before McGuinty, he was one of the most hated Premiers since Bob Rae screwed us…………..then he moves on into the corporate world and has basically bounced around like a ping pong ball as he really isn’t that “talented”,,,,,,look at his position inside Magna……………….asked to leave two months ago by shareholders………wonder why…………………Their days in public office come and go…their legacy of disaster lingers forever!

      • But this GUV. married into the Kennedy clan and one of them, a Kennedy, was on the Board of the Chicago Climate Exchange.

  3. Remembering history!
    What’s new – what’s not

    Jimmy Carter Mandatory Conservation

    ….and they booted him out! Thank goodness!

    McGuinty Liberals – encouraging ‘sustainable development’ schemes –
    …………………should not be adopted in Ontario.

    Mother nature is alive and well. Thank you!
    It’s the economy stupid……………..

  4. Wack job – Elizabeth May – goes ballistic
    Stephen Harper – does not understand
    are you ready? – ah huh – Climate Change!

    Elizabeth ‘spins’ and ‘spins’ and ‘spins’ and ‘spins’

    But – not one word –
    about Dalton McGuinty’s – Omnibus Bill 55
    McGuinty understands – Climate Change.
    Bravo! Ugh!

    If the budget passes, industrial wind developers will no longer have to request an exemption permit under the Endangered Species Act or post such notice to the EBR! There have been six exemption permit requests in the last few months by solar and wind developers. Samsung, at this moment, is requesting an exemption permit to rid the area of meadowlarks and bobolinks for its wind power plant. The developers must be delighted! Is there any doubt left as to who is really running the McGuinty government?

    • Maybe if the good Misstress May had spent more time studying math and statistics she could have some meaningful observations to make…

      • Environmental lunatics like May – real message:
        Support the United Nations – or, Harper wins!
