The president has burdened our economy, job creators and American families with new taxes and red tape that punish American energy sources that do not fit into the his vision of a green economy.

During a weekly address two year ago, President Obama proudly announced that he was awarding Abound Solar a $400 million stimulus loan guarantee. The announcement came in the midst of the Obama administration’s much hyped “Recovery Summer.” As most Americans know, the president’s stimulus has failed to create the jobs that were promised.
