AOC to Tesla, "taxpayers have not seen a return on their investment." RT News:
Incoming New York congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is taking aim at that most sacred of American cows, the public-private partnership, criticizing Tesla for accepting government subsidies without giving back to the taxpayer.Does she remember Solyndra and other green energy failures that cost taxpayers over $2.2 billion? Or $4 billion annually to oil companies? (It's the NYT so it has to be true).
“When we as a public choose to invest in new technologies, we deserve a return on that investment,” Ocasio-Cortez said during a climate change town hall event on Monday.
While Tesla has certainly benefited from government subsidies, racking up $2.4 billion as of 2016, the company does not receive nearly as much from the taxpayer as other automakers like Ford, which received $4 billion during that same time, or GM, which got $5.8 billion.
Is anyone documenting AOC's every clouded non-sequitur statement at some site or blog? How could anyone keep up? When would you sleep? It's not possible.
