Media Matters, the left-wing mouth piece of billionaire George Soros, is again trying to misrepresent the facts in ATR’s post on California. So far, we have disproved their claims about Alabama and Arizona. They claim that California, "could see a net increase of about $18.5 billion in investment revenue and 175,000 jobs based on its share of a total of $150 billion in clean-energy investments annually across the country.” These numbers come from another far-left-wing Soros funded organization, Center for American Progress.
This is the same argument they used against our previous posts, and again it doesn’t take into account that clean energy subsidies are conditional upon partnership with organized unions. Only 20.2% of the private sector construction workforce is unionized, meaning 79.8% of construction jobs are ineligible for Green Jobs Act funding.
California has been suffering because of leftist schemes for years. Is there anyone foolish enough to think this leftist scheme wouldn’t hurt it even more?
