    You called the Solyndra loan a "handout". Now you're running away from that claim, it seems.

    Solyndra and the other manufacturers are facing a huge influx of Chinese competition. Competition that is not only receiving subsidized loans, but subsidized utilities and subsidized rent.

    The great thing about your hypocrisy is that people like you are against the very kind of subsidies that are allowing foreign firms to drive American business into the ground.
    Should the administration not be aware of all of this and the ramifications before simply throwing away a half billion collars?

    How many jobs did we "save or create" through this loan over the last 12 months?

    Wouldn't this merely show that BOTH administrations had a hand in backing a shady company? Looks like we're spreading, not passing.
