• Meet CRAPITALIST Ron Klain: Obama Backer, Tax Dollar Swindler, And Your New Ebola Czar

    Don’t look now but the Ebola crisis has given the Obama White House another opportunity to engage in political cronyism.

    Thats’ right. Today, Obama announced the appointment of longtime Democrat operative Ron Klain as his Ebola “czar.” This choice makes absolutely no sense. Or does it?

    Ron Klain doesn’t have any medical training. And he certainly doesn’t have a history that suggests that he’s even remotely equipped with the necessary tools needed to deal with a public health crisis of Ebola’s magnitude.

    We first heard about Mr. Ron Klain during the Solyndra debacle. Ron Klain was Biden’s chief of staff at the time and when there were flags being raised about Solyndra’s viability, Klain used his clout to help push the taxpayer-backed loan forward anyway.

    And behind the push to keep Solyndra’s doors open was billionaire Obama donor George Kaiser. Kaiser was the largest shareholder of Solyndra.

    Not only did the new Ebola czar Klain help George Kaiser get a government subsidy for his personal investment, but as Jason Mattera reveals in his new book CRAPITALISM, Kaiser was also able to restructure Solyndra’s Loan before it went belly-up so that private investors–like himself– got paid first during bankruptcy proceedings and we, the taxpayers, were left holding the bill.

    So, while taxpayers watched as hundreds of millions of dollars were pumped into a green energy pipe dream, Obama backers like Kaiser were able to look forward to as much as $975 million in tax carryovers to use against future income earnings.

    So that’s who Ron Klain, your new Ebola Czar, is: A loyal Democrat who rewards campaign contributors with taxpayer cash.

    And now he’s Obama’s point man, leading a wildly incompetent campaign against Ebola.
