Henry Waxman: Steven Chu Throwing Taxpayer Money Down the Crapper on Solyndra Will Save Us From Fires, Droughts and Floods


Steven Chu, Barack Obama and the rest of the Democrats saved us from a horrible death by thirst, fire and drowning by throwing $535 million down the hole on Solyndra — and nobody even bothered to thank them!

That’s the laughable view of the congressman who wields weapons-grade ugly, Henry Waxman:

(CNSNews.com) – Representative Henry Waxman (D-Calif.), the ranking Democrat on the House Energy and Commerce Committee, said that Department of Energy subsidies, such as the the failed $535-million loan guarantee to solar company Sloyndra, were “saving” people from “fires, droughts and floods” that are caused by global warming.

“I want to put this in perspective Dr. Chu,” Waxman told Energy Secretary Steven Chu on Thursday at a House Energy and Commerce subcommittee hearing on the Solyndra failure. “You’ve been trying to move our nation toward a clean energy economy. And that’s essential to protect American families from fires and droughts and floods and other extreme weather that climate change will bring.”

Question for Waxman: How many taxpayer-funded bankruptcies will it take to fully stave off global warming and save the world?
