Gore-Backed Car Firm Gets Large U.S. Loan
WASHINGTON -- A tiny car company backed by former Vice President Al Gore has just gotten a $529 million U.S. government loan to help build a hybrid sports car in Finland that will sell for about $89,000.
The award this week to California startup Fisker Automotive Inc. follows a $465 million government loan to Tesla Motors Inc., purveyors of a $109,000 British-built electric Roadster. Tesla is a California startup focusing on all-electric vehicles, with a number of celebrity endorsements that is backed by investors that have contributed to Democratic campaigns.
Let's see...over 500 million to an overseas car company, which will not give any Americans jobs, to produce a $90,000.00 car that most Americans cannot afford. Well, why not? We are in so much debt what's another half billion? After all, Al Gore backs them!
p.s. I would have included links to mainstream media coverage of this but guess what? There aren't any. What a surprise......
