Romney to Obama: ‘You Don’t Just Pick The Winners And Losers, You Pick The Losers’
ROMNEY: And in one year you provided $90 billion in breaks to the green energy world. Now, I like green energy as well, but that’s about 50 years worth of what oil and gas receives and you say Exxon Mobil, actually this $2.8 billion goes to small companies, to drilling operators and so forth. If we get the tax rate from 35% to 25%, why that $2.8 billion is on the table.
(21:38:00) Of course it’s on the table. That’s probably not going to survive to get the rate down to 25% but don’t forget, you put $90 billion, like 50 years worth of breaks into solar and wind to solar and wind, to Solyndra and Fisker and Tesler and I had a friend who said you don’t just pick the winners and losers, you pick the losers. This is not the kind of policy you want to have to get America energy secure.
