Amanda Carey of The Daily Caller published a story that exposes Congressman Russ Carnahan’s (D-MO) brother got $107 million from Obama’s economic stimulus plan to support his wind farm.
In addition to bailing out state budgets, Obama’s stimulus package was also used to bailout floundering businesses such as the Lost Creek wind farm in Missouri. Naturally, GE, who lobbied for the plan, also benefited from the grant. They sold 100 wind turbines to supply the wind farm.
This example illustrates the corruption that stems from government interference in the free market. When government picks winners and losers, “We the People” are left out.
