Out of state tax breaks from Pa to those companies, no benefit to Pa residents. So.. its time to call YOUR elected escape career politician and explain how his decision is putting it up your arsee!!!
You are correct. Now hold onto your seat for this revelation...
The windmills in PA get funding and tax breaks. They get the same breaks EVERY TIME they change hands.
They changed hands several times, and now some (Bedford area) are owned by FOREIGN COMPANIES who are getting US tax breaks.
I'm not positive, but they may also be getting carbon credits, which can be bought and sold, just like research & development credits. They have value on the market. A polluting company buys cc's to offset their pollution amounts. The selling company gets paid by them. Nothing is cleaned up, but pockets get lined with taxpayer monies.
NOW call your reps and ASK him/her to look into how many times the alternative energy company has changed hands and for the total amount of gov't/taxpayer "benefits" in grants and tax incentives/breaks and carbon credits (and where they have been used and by whom).
Just make sure you're not standing too closely when the Clintons and obama send in the bunker buster missile towards his office after they process his phone tap
Oh- and don't forget to remind him that it is money out of HIS DISTRICT that is not being paid by their fraudulent (yet legal?) maneuvers. See how fast he can gather support to get the loophole patched.
Patching these kinds of fraudulent activities would sure go a long ways towards road and bridge work, instead of having the highest (and increasing) road fuel taxes in the nation.
BTW, how much did obama's buddies at Solandra soak up? How much did they repay? Yeah....
