“The report notes that in the 1980s, oil companies received $3.2 billion in loan guarantees and $3.7 billion in price guarantees for oil shale — funded with taxpayer dollars.” That’s 7 Billion just in the 80’s.

The U.S. Department of Energy made a huge mistake in giving Solyndra a $535 million loan guarantee?

If Republicans view Solyndra as the corporate embodiment of everything that is wrong with the Obama administration they must really despise Reagan, Right?

Gee, somebody is talking sense about the cost of oil shale? And they seem to be a conservative group?

When will wonders cease?

Happy Valley Heretic... you nailed it. It simply depends on who receives the money. Oil companies are on federal welfare and someone needs to wean them immediately.
