Except for Herman Cain
– Agco Corporation received up to $5 million of stimulus grants to develop “supply systems to handle and deliver high tonnage biomass feedstocks for cellulosic biofuels production.”
– Whirlpool Corporation received a $19,330,000 stimulus grant from the Department of Energy to develop SmartGrid solutions.
– Whirlpool launched a special offer to encourage customers to take advantage of the stimulus program’s energy efficient appliance program. The company advertised that certain Whirlpool, Maytag and KitchenAid appliances are available for rebate through the $300 million rebate program authorized by the stimulus.
– Whirlpool also received two stimulus grants of $2,042,700 to develop next generation energy efficient refrigerators.
According to ThinkProgress, Herman Cain draws a salary from sitting on the board of the Agco Corporation and the Whirlpool Corporation.
If the stimulus is such a failure that only lead to bigger government, why did businesses that Herman Cain oversees as a board member take advantage of it?
And not only did they take advantage of the stimulus, they did so in the name of energy efficiency, alternative fuels, and SmartGrid technology. Ya' know, all of those socialist ideas that President Obama is always talking about.
The hypocrisy is incalculable.
