    In this instance the potential liabilities from producing uranium may be more than any lender would agree to get involved in. If there was an accident in this experimental process the lawyers would go after the deep pockets of the lenders. On the other hand it may be crony capitalism......both parties are guilty as charged.

    Solyndra owner was a huge obama bundler, it was a political pay off not an honest legitimate investment in energy.

    It's easy for someone in Boehners position then. Pass a bill not that gives them $2 billion we do not have but that shields creditors from the lawyers.

    I am glad you also understand that nuclear energy is sustainable whereas experimental technology is not economically sustainable but maybe in the future.
    The question is more important than the answer!

    After almost 70 years of producing uranium, I believe we can safely remove the "experimental" label here, especially since Iran is doing it as well, don't you think ?

    I understand that Solyndra argued that they were sustainable. I'm good with nuclear energy. I'm saying it's moved beyond government funding.

    Or make the nuclear power plant in a blue state that would favor it.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    Tort reform is not something BO or any democrat would support. Heck, many establishment republicans would also push back as well.

    I used that word after reading this part of th article....
    The American Centrifuge Plant, owned by Bethesda, Maryland- based USEC, has been a demonstration project since August 2007,
    I assumed, maybe incorrectly, the word "demonstration" implied there was something different about this project.

    I'd say that depends on what the tort reform consists of. If it transfers power away from the public and gives business more power in lawsuits, yes I would be against it. If it only punishes obvious frivolous law suits then I think most people would be for it.
