The challenger and the incumbent in the NNY Congressional race brewing for next year are at odds over an Obama Administration program that was supposed to create jobs through subsidy of the solar panel industry. The Solyndra debacle and other so called "green" energy subsidies are what Rep. Bill Owens thinks is "investment" that carries some risks, but perhaps in Solyndra's case needed better oversight.
Challenger Matt Doheny says its a case of the government trying to pick winners and losers when the marketplace should determine whether these industries should exist.
In the real world the market does make that call. Just look around and see what energy systems consumers use. Very few can afford these systems even with government subsidy.
