If your hair doesn’t stand on end after you hear Rep. Mike Kelly (R-PA) speak, then you’re either dead or using too much hair tonic or hair spray! This video is about excessive government regulations. Listen to his colleagues cheer. This guy is the real deal!
In this video, Kelly just eviscerates Michael Ahearn, former chief executive officer and current chairman of the board of First Solar, Inc, a solar panel industry leader. Between 2008 and 2012, Mr. Ahearn sold roughly $450 million worth of First Solar stock.
Throughout that period, First Solar’s stock lost nearly 95 percent of its value. In early August 2011, just days after First Solar was awarded its first DOE loan totaling nearly $1 billion, Mr. Ahearn sold approximately 700,000 shares of stock at a value of more than $68.5 million.
Despite receiving a total of more than $3 billion in DOE loan guarantees, First Solar has laid off 30 percent of its workforce and has delayed plans to hire hundreds of employees for its yet-to-be completed Mesa, AZ, facility.
In the final video, Rep. Kelly excoriates the President over the issue of religious freedom and the contraception mandate. Truly, a modern Mr. Smith goes to Washington.
