Investors in some of the nation’s most heavily subsidized green energy companies are among the top campaign fundraisers for Hillary Clinton, who has pledged to step up government support for wind, solar, and other renewable energy companies.
Clinton’s green energy investor bundlers have been deeply involved in prior efforts at the state and federal levels to secure taxpayer funds for such companies. A Clinton presidency would virtually guarantee additional subsidies and government incentives.
“I met yesterday in Chicago with a big group of clean renewable energy businesses and they’re just ready to go,” she said at an Iowa campaign stop in November. “But they need some help from the government.”
The people who object most strenuously to this are Bernie supporters, of course.
The money-counts part, that is, not the green part. Lot of major plutocrats in the mix, thanking whatever powers there be for Citizens United.
