    Re: Boehner Demands $2 Billion for Ohio Plant After Solyndra

    If Boehner really wants to push nuclear energy, then I think a better method for him to do so would be to spend federal money to upgrade the nuclear power plants that we already have built. Such as those in Vermont, which I hear is causing quite a political stink in that state.

    But then that would mean granting federal money to the state represented in the Senate by Bernie Sanders, who is an avowed democratic socialist.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    Agreed, although I'd prefer that we start looking seriously at thorium technology.

    What would be happening here is one and the same. Nobody is going to sue the government over something like this.

    But but but, why would a GOPer want government subsidies for the private sector? Aint that socialism!?!?!

    I say he should get his 2 billion.. after he agrees to raise the taxes on the uber rich and banks.

    I don't disagree. If he wants the money he must raise it somehow.

    Just a few things....

    1-When did 'urging' become 'demanding'?
    2-You act is if it is shocking that there is no difference between dems and republicans in their behaviors.
    3-Which do you think is a more viable use of income tax revenue (assuming you have some skin in the game)...investment in a company like Solyndra or a nuclear fuel company?

    I dont think the fed should be doing the work of the private sector myself...but since they are going to spend Ohioans tax dollars SOMEWHERE, wouldnt Boehner be acting irresponsbily if he didnt try to get some of those tax dollars back into his state? If ther fed doesnt invest 2 billion in THIS company, will it just not invest it anywhere or will they still spend it somewhere?

    I'm not against funding for either Solyndra or for nuclear power plants. In fact, I think all nuclear power plants should be owned and operated by the government because only the government has the money to ensure the safe continual operation of these plants.

    But the GOP attacks the Democrats for government spending, and in 2010 there was a "Tea Party revolution" that even upset the neo-conservative GOP incumbents.

    So I don't really attack neo-conservatives for government spending - I know that the issue with them is "What do you want to spend government money on?" But with Tea Party GOPers they are opposed to even that, and attack Democrats just on that alone. Which is highly disingenuous.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    Have you read the Tea Party's position on this?

    On this particular issue regarding the nuclear power plants? No.

    However, it is known that the Tea Party is a libertarian popular movement who believes that the government should cut government spending on most programs.

    Sure. I'm not sure what that has to do with Boehner though.
