The Senate Finance Committee and the House Ways and Means Committee have launched a probe into tax incentives paid to solar companies, according to The Wall Street Journal.
The committee probes, led by their respective Republican chairmen, Rep. Kevin Brady of Texas and Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah, have found an appropriate and disturbing target to begin this work. SolarCity, a solar installation company set to be purchased by Tesla Motors Inc., is one of the seven companies named in the initial investigation.
Already grossly subsidized, Musk’s SolarCity has become an albatross of waste, fraud, and abuse of tax payer dollars. As legitimate earnings and cash become even scarcer for SolarCity, its entanglement in the Tesla empire suggests that a drastic reckoning not only is imminent, but in fact emboldening Musk to become more outlandish and reckless.So many songs to choose from. The finalists were "with a little help from my friends" and "the end of the line." But something new. This is the extended version, available only in the UK, apparently:
Tesla shares have seen a huge drop in the past month:
- October 27, 2016: $204
- November 8, 2016: $195 -- Tuesday, election day
- November 9, 2016: $190 -- Wednesday, Trump declared the winner
- November 16, 2016: $183
