How President Obama Stole Our Money to Buy Votes

If you have a house that you sell for $200,000 and you owe the mortgage company $150,000, then you have $50,000 in equity. That $50,000 is your money to invest, spend, or save. If you make a wise investment, you’ll make money. If you make a bad investment, you’ll lose money. It’s that simple, unless the government gets involved.

Private equity firms partner with financial institutions, venture capitalists, and private investors to purchase companies that are often poorly managed and losing money. The private equity firms believe that with hands-on management, possibly a reduced work force, restructuring, the sale of some assets, the company can be salvaged, either for a sale or ongoing profitability. The goal is to make money for the investors, not to guarantee someone a job.

Some companies make it and others do not. The risk of gain or loss remains with the investors with their own money at no risk to tax payers.

President Obama and some of his fellow Democrats have criticized Mitt Romney’s tenure at the private equity firm Bain Capital. What’s there to criticize? Romney and his business partners invested their own money in failed companies and brought a good number of them back to life. Sounds like a good thing to me. Did some people lose their jobs? Yes. Did some people keep their jobs? Yes. If the investment had not been made, would everybody have lost their jobs? Yes.

President Obama has been using money that the government took from you and me to “invest” in companies for political purposes. We didn’t give him permission to do this. There is no constitutional basis for such "investments." If a private equity firm stole money from you and me to invest in a company – no matter how good the investment might be – the managers of that company would go to jail.

We’ve heard about the $535 million dollar “investment” that President Obama made with our money that went to the solar panel manufacturer Solyndra. Solyndra’s after-“investment” bankruptcy is just the tip of the iceberg. Marc A. Thiessen offers the following summary of some of the President’s tax-payer-funded “equity investments” in his article “Forget Bain — Obama’s Public-Equity Record is the Real Scandal”:

  • In 2010, the Obama administration gave Raser Technologies a $33 million taxpayer-funded grant to build a power plant in Beaver Creek, Utah. The company filed for bankruptcy.
  • The Obama administration gave ECOtality $126.2 million in taxpayer money in 2009. According to ECOtality’s own SEC filings, the company has since incurred more than $45 million in losses.
  • The Obama administration gave Nevada Geothermal Power (NGP) a $98.5 million taxpayer loan guarantee in 2010.
  • The Obama administration provided First Solar with more than $3 billion in loan guarantees for power plants in Arizona and California.
  • The Obama administration gave Abound Solar, Inc. a $400 million loan guarantee to build photovoltaic panel factories.
  • The Obama administration gave Beacon Power— a green-energy storage company — a $43 million loan guarantee.
  • A company called SunPower got a $1.2 billion loan guarantee from the Obama administration, and as of January, the company owed more than it was worth.
  • Brightsource got a $1.6 billion loan guarantee and posted a string of net losses totaling $177 million.

All of these “investments” have three things in common: (1) the companies are failures, (2) the money was taken from us – the taxpayers – to fund what a private equity firm would not, and (3) “as Hoover Institution scholar Peter Schweizer reported in his book, ‘Throw Them All Out,’ fully 71 percent of the Obama Energy Department’s grants and loans went to ‘individuals who were bundlers, members of Obama’s National Finance Committee, or large donors to the Democratic Party.’ Collectively, these Obama cronies raised $457,834 for his campaign, and they were in turn approved for grants or loans of nearly $11.35 billion.”

It's fun being the President when you can "invest" other people's money and not have to pay it back if you lose it.

         yea, under this Administration the Unions have gained way to much power.  I hope Wisconsin voters re-elect the Republican governor (Scott Walker) tomorrow.  It would be a tremendous defeat for the Democrat Party if this happens and hopefully give the momentum to the Republicans for the November elections.  The Unions served a great purpose in the 19th and 20th centuries, but they have outlived their usefulness today.  There are way to many of them not producing anything and still getting fat salaries.

  • Wiseone

    Can you say "High crimes and misdemeanors"?

  • http://twitter.com/politiJim PolitiJim

    I completely agree with the notion that Obama's use of taxpayer money to "invest" into companies is the MUCH greater evil than anything Romney did at Bain Capital.  Not only do we publicly taxed  "investors" have no say about who we use public dollars for - we don't even get a return if they are successful.  That is outright theft in my book.

    But since this came up in the Gingrich/Limbaugh days - I STILL refuse to defend everything Romney did at Bain.  Conservatives had better wake up and quit defending EVERY form of capitalism including multiple well documented instances where Romney and company destroyed a company intentionally misleading later investors.  

    Yes, it happens every day.  Yes,  it is incumbent upon the "investor" to do his or her homework prior to investing - but the idea that the venture capitalist mechanism can not be misused not only do to harm to individuals, much less BENEFIT the free market Republic is a very naive view.

    Don't make the mistake of starting to defend everything Romney has done as acceptable.  We will be right back where we were with Bush - defending the indefensible because he is "our" guy.

    Let's show some integrity and not whitewash the facts about Romney just so it plays better in the media.  As I wrote at the time of the Limbaugh/Gingrich episode (here http://www.politijim.com/2012/01/limbaugh-is-liberal-not-newt.html) Romney has blood on his hands for something Founders despised called Mercantilism.

    We can defend Constitutional free market Republicanism without having to do Romney's dirty laundry.

  • Samtman

    Not only will he get my vote, I will put my mouth where my money is and send him $25.00, no stealing here.  How many of the bloggers on this posting will send $25.00 bucks to Romney. Or may be you wont have to, because he is getting millions from the Oil industrie.

         Good one oldfartAmerican.  Samtman is not smart enough to realize all the bad things Obama has done.  He is probably the recipient of all the taxpayer funded programs Obama has initiated or expanded since 2009.  You know, programs like rent subsidies, food stamps, income tax credit for children born and living in Mexico, and other programs we do not even know about.

    The article said, "Obama cronies raised $457,834 for his campaign, and they were in turn approved for grants or loans of nearly $11.35 billion.”

    Let me do that math.....return on 'investment' = 23852%

    Now you know why 'campaign' contributions are SO important theses days. Once you have bought and paid for a politician, you have free use of the kitty.

  • Wzskiman

    An investment of $457,834 returns $11.35 billion. That sounds like a fantastic return. How can I invest my IRA in such a deal?

    This is a quote from George Washington's first State of the Union address:

    Nor am I less persuaded that you will agree with me in opinion, that there is nothing which can better deserve your patronage than the promotion of science and literature. Knowledge is, in every country, the surest basis of public happiness. In one in which the measures of Government receive their impression so immediately from the sense of the community, as in ours, it is proportionably essential. . . .
     
    President Washington knew the value of government investment in science.

    The Obama Regime will be noted for three things in History:  #1 Ineptitude, #2 Lack of Eligibility and #3 Corruption.   All Three of these Faults are grounds for Impeachment.  If he were Not the First Black President, he would have been impeached and driven from Office 2 years ago.  His Communist Handlers use divide and separate techniques coupled with control of the Liberal Media to keep this Pretender in Office.

    Obama Must Go!  He is Bad for America and the World.

  • Bob2002

     GWY, while there are many skeletons in the closet of the Senate, the primary reason nothing will happen in the Senate is Harry Reid.  Since Obama lost the majority in the House, Reid's primary job is to obfuscate, delay, and kill any law the House wanted to pass.  All Americans would know this except we do not have a constructive media.  They are 95% in the tank for the left wing politics of the Democrat Party.  It is going to be very difficult to unseat Obama in November because of SATAN (old ACORN), the media, Eric Holder's constantly suing states that have strong voter ID laws, and all the corruption of this Administration in buying votes with our taxes.  The 65 million voters of the Right who did not vote in 2008 must be motivated to vote this time.  Our nation can not stand 4 more years of Obama and Holder.

    The movie Rushmore's about a presidential election. It's about a President who's trying to buy off one undecided voter. Why?
    Because he wants that undecided voter, (Kevin Spacey), to vote for him and he's willing to pay him ANYTHING, to vote for
    him.

     I hope the Citizens of this country wake up.. If not, God may give us what we deserve, not what we want.
    It is time people take back Washington and get rid of all the lawyers in congress and the other bums who are raping the system.  Republicans and Democrats alike are to blame. They go to Washington and fall into the hands of the greedy and power hungry insiders that are there.
    I believe Rick Perry and Herman Cain were correct.  We don't need Congress in session every year.. Once every 2 or 5 years is all, unless there is a national emergency.  Send the bums home and let their pay be ths average American Salary..

      RON PAUL   2012 

      Semper Fi

        Ron Paul (could NOT get Elected when  he ran for Senate) Why would you want him to be the POTUS  -- Check his actual Record - the One where he has Authored & Co- Authored -Bills - Then tell me how many were Passed . . . . . I won't wait for a Answer - I lived in TX & know the Answer-    its pretty pathetic- He is a Career Politican-  Plain & Simple --His Son has a better message---& Could get Elected....   We need a Strong Candidate that Can Win- Not a Salty Dog -- that likes to Campaign ---

           Ron Paul's record speaks for itself, and it says, "I will  continually strive to protect the rights of  the country's citizenry ,  in spite of the rest of Capitol Hill doing " business as usual".  His bills have been unsuccessful because he has stood for what is right, not for what is politically expedient.   By the way, when did you live in Texas, when LBJ was  conniving his way  to the white house?   You are right to ask readers to check Ron Paul's record . Check it out  in Wikipedia by googling "bills sponsored  by Ron Paul".... I  am hopefully sure  his son will follow in the integrity of his father!

    We must put a cap on the amount of taxes we WANT TO PAY not what they tell us we have to pay.
    No budget no money. We must STRIKE!

    I think that anybody that votes for him in 2012 should be locked up on the funny farm, unless they are black.  Then they are following the bro code and I kind of respect that.

      For what reason   the Brother Code -Black Pastors are MAd as Heck that he "evolved"- N one should Vote for someone because of Race- Color - Religion- What's next - you like the Same Team ? Gimme a Break  ... Nothing less "Cool: than Voting for a Marxist !" that wants to fundamentaly TRANSFORM the Nation - Look at California - Look again - Look at the MESS they are in - What is that "progressive " Cancer spreads - in ALL the States--- we will have 50% UNE --Riots in the Streets - they should only be SANE Voters that are Respected...........

    If you voted for Obama to prove you were not a racist, then you will have to vote for someone else to prove that you are not insane!

    This  sure works for us!  THE BEST WAY, “THANK ABOUT IT”, JIM.  WRITTEN BY A 21 YEAR OLD FEMALE I am going to let the   Republican nominee know that   we have found him a VP from Texas that truly understands the situation at hand. Wow, this girl has a great plan!  Love the last thing she would do the best.  This was written by a 21 year old female who gets it.  It's her future she's worried about and this is how she feels about the social welfare big government state that she's being forced to live in!  These solutions are just common sense in her opinion.  This was in the Waco Tribune Herald, Waco, TX , Nov 18, 2011  PUT ME IN CHARGE . . .  Put me in charge of food stamps. I'd get rid of Lone Star cards; no cash for Ding Dongs or Ho Ho's, just money for 50-pound bags of rice and beans, blocks of cheese and away. If you want steak and frozen pizza, then get a job.         Put me in charge of Medicaid. The first thing I'd do is to  get women Norplant birth control implants or tubal legations. Then, we'll test recipients for drugs, alcohol, and nicotine. If you want to reproduce or use drugs, alcohol, or smoke, then get a job.  Put me in charge of government housing.  Ever live in a military barracks? You will maintain our property in a clean and good state of repair. Your " home" will be subject to inspections anytime and possessions will be inventoried.  If you want a plasma TV or Xbox 360, then get a job and your own place.  In addition, you will either present a check stub from a job each week or you will report to a "government" job.  It may be cleaning the roadways of trash, painting and repairing public housing, whatever we find for you. We will sell your 22 inch rims and low profile tires and your  blasting stereo and speakers and put that money toward the "common good.."  Before you write that I've violated someone's rights, realize that all of the above is voluntary.  If you want our money, accept our rules.  Before you say that this would be "demeaning" and ruin their "self esteem," consider that it wasn't that long ago that taking someone else's money for doing absolutely nothing was demeaning and lowered self esteem.  If we are expected to pay for other people's mistakes we should at least attempt to make them learn from their bad choices.  The current system rewards them for continuing to make bad choices.  AND While you are on Gov't subsistence, you no longer can VOTE!  Yes, that is correct.  For you to vote would be a conflict of interest.  You will voluntarily remove yourself from voting while you are receiving a Gov't  welfare check.  If you want to vote, then get a job.  Now, if you have the guts - PASS IT ON... I WOULD REALLY LIKE TO GET THIS BACK, IF EVERYONE SENDS IT, I WILL GET OVER 220 BACK!!!  I WOULD KNOW YOU SENT IT ON!!!   No virus found in this message.

    Don't argue. The man is an incompetent idiot.  Yes, Obama gave $535M to Solyndra and well over a billion to a mixture of other companies, and his political hacks think Bain did wrong/  Was Bain receiving federal funds?

    Ding dong!

  • Jwhitemd

    Squandering of taxpayer money is destructive in so many ways, and the government's ability to choose who to support is laughable. May I observe that if Obama and his puppeteers were to disappear tomorrow, America has been damaged on so many levels by the Marxist mentality, the removal of God and truth from public life, total loss of confidence in the institutions of freedom, liberty, individual rights that are God-given, that it would take decades to recover from the harm done. God save America.

    No real surprise .    The whole of the Obama administration from start to finish has been a criminal enterprise.   Money laundrying to fiance it is no great surprise.

    This is a general comment about Patriot Newswire. It has been placed here because there is no "contact us" link. Why must readers who are interested in a particular article required to click "read more" multiple times in order to finally get to the end of the article?  This becomes a huge waste of time for those of us who really do enjoy and benefit from your articles but must wait over and over for internet connections to be made to finish just one article at a time.

    More and more, Ayn Rand's "Atlass Shrugged" is becoming a stark reality under this Administration. Marc Thiessen's article reads like several paragraphs from the novel, specifically those that involve Wesley Mouch and his Washington, DC regime ordering the reallocation of funds from more successful companies to failing companies--even those that have gone bankrupt.

    Why is everyone so passive about this, and just say, "Oh well"?  Why are NOT more American Lawyers doing something.. oh.. I get it.. they are buddies with OB, and so scared of their political law careers they would cower like rats they are.  Were are the hero's in this country? 

  • Sbk Coco

    Obama, the lying, stealing coward-in-chief.  He and the powers behind him are an abomination, a blight on American history.  May the American people continue to hear the truth and recognize it.  May we exercise our God-given liberty and vote the communist out of office, and all the cockroaches in the senate as well.

  • Davidgto

    Your politicians have "F.....D this country up so badly that I cannot even dream to invent a cure.  Most all of your politicians have managed very well to lie, cheat and thieve from you,  And, they have been very successful.  This is all your fault!  Most all of you believe in "Mainstream News".  Well, I have news for you.  They only tell you what they want you to hear.  Nothing more.  Our "News Organizations" have been bought and paid for and, they are told exactly what to say and nothing more.  Shame on most of you supposed Americans because you have become "Sheeples".  And, through your laziness...you are going to pay...big time!  As example...Do you know that the nuclear crisis in Japan has never gone away?  When has your last report from your trusted news media indicated this?  Reactor 4 still has a huge problem and they don't quite know how to control it.  One doctor in the USA visited Chernobyl after it occurred.   Well she  indicates that this disaster actually exceeds the Chernobyl disaster by multiples as to radiation exposure.   When did you hear this from your trusted main stream news organizations?  Yes, this is year to date and it is very real.  "F...K' our main stream news organizations because they represent only the absolute elites and...they now own the news.   Her name is Dr. Thersa Dale and her credentials are more than just a flash in the pan.  Look her up!!!  There are still some who tell the truth.  But, not many.  :(

    strange how all the "Green Energy " companies that Obama gave tax payers money to went belly up soon after and stranger still how all the owners of these companies were major bundles providers for Obama's first election run and how the tax payers were moved down the list to be re-payed after the owners, I still would like to see how much of these funds have been kicked back into Obama's reelection funds? 

  • Lawrobnel

    The Godfather was a straight shooter in this article. Beyond a doubt this was paybacks. I think you missed one, he also used stimulus money to send his drug cartel buddies millions of dollars in guns. There is no way they could think they would be able to trace these guns once they entered Mexico. Obama doesn't care because none of the main stream (drive-by) media will ever hold his administration responsible.
