Truckin’ to Solyndra. Another $424,000 in stimulus wasted on now bankrupt Mountain Plaza truck stop
Hey, at least this was only around half a million dollars wasted by the stimulus, and not half a billion like Solyndra. Of course, half a billion was wasted on an Al Gore connected electric car company called called Fisker that produces cars in Finland instead of America. But it’s all cool for Marxist Democrats and Obama. According to The Blaze, Mountain Plaza, INC has gone belly up despite the half a million dollars of our money.
A Tennessee company called Mountain Plaza Inc. that received $424,000 in a stimulus fund grant has gone completely broke.
The grant was approved by both the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) for the construction of electrical hookups at a truck stop in Dandridge, TN, “so that truckers wouldn’t have to burn diesel fuel while resting,” reports Fox News Insider.
In other words, thoughts of clean energy and environmental friendly trucks stops most likely influenced the awarding of the grant.
