Electric Car Battery Maker A123 Systems Files Bankruptcy

Quote:A123, which received a $249.1 million federal grant in 2009 to build a U.S. factory, needed a financial lifeline after struggling with costs from a recall of batteries supplied to Fisker Automotive Inc., the plug-in hybrid luxury carmaker. A123 announced in August that it was working on a deal with Wanxiang Group Corp., China’s largest auto-parts maker, for financing in exchange for a majority ownership stake.

How many billions have now been lost due to grants given out during TARP? Where's the massive recovery?

But, but, but it created so many jobs. Put good honest Americans to work who would have otherwise been unemployed.

Might make for a good commercial for the Romney camp.

If ya think about it, Obama could almost be considered the Angel of Death that's talked about in Revelation. Just about every company that he's given money to or any smaller politician that he visited during the last election cycle failed.
