Since regaining control of the House of Representatives in 2011, Republicans have closely probed the loss of $535 million in taxpayer dollars on the failed green energy firm known as Solyndra. Now the man who chaired most of the Congressional hearings tells us about the report released by Republicans. Florida Rep. Cliff Stearns chairs the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Oversights and Investigations. Stearns details how taxpayers were supposed to be first in line to get their money back but private investors got their money back while taxpayers got nothing. He also discusses what he sees as the problems with the Energy Department’s loan program that Stearns says tried to pick winners and losers and failed miserably. moreover, Stearns says government should not be trying to artificially control the energy sector. The congressman contends that market forces should be allowed to dictate winners and losers and federal interference needs to be rooted out. As a result, Stearns is sponsoring the ‘No More Solyndras Act’. It would codify that taxpayers are always the first to be reimbursed when a firm receiving taxpayer dollars goes bankrupt. But it would also the type of investments government makes and encourage a market-oriented approach to the energy sector and beyond.
