• Senator Kay Hagan: A Career CRAPITALIST

    In May 2012, North Carolina Senator Kay Hagan (D) said “Far too often, U.S. small businesses are impeded by government paperwork and bureaucratic red tape.”

    So in 2007, as a member of North Carolina’s General Assembly, Kay Hagan helped pass a new law requiring all investor-owned utility companies to receive 12.5% of their electricity from renewable sources.

    Meanwhile her son, Tilden Hagan, was off starting his very own solar panel developer company called Green State Power. Green State Power is located in Greensboro, N.C., Kay Hagan’s former district. A local report said Green State Power “would not be here today if it were not for this law.”

    Oddly enough, Green State Power’s other officers include Senator Hagan’s husband and her son-in-law. It’s a family affair.

    Kay Hagan says “We in Congress need to do everything possible to encourage and cultivate small businesses, so that they can expand and create jobs.” So she voted for Obama’s stimulus law, which resulted in tax credits being funneled to her son’s solar panel company.

    What are the odds of that?

    The Hagan family also owns JDC Manufacturing. That company received $390,000 in grants and tax credits from Obama’s stimulus law.

    After all, Senator Hagan hates how government stifles small business growth. . . especially when it’s her small business.

    Senator Hagan once said she wants to “protect the middle-class taxpayer, first and foremost.” But she’s actually robbing the middle-class taxpayer blind.

    Senator Hagan is a classic Crapitalist. She’s used her position of power, in North Carolina and in D.C., to personally enrich herself and her family. And she left you holding the bill.

    As CRAPITALISM author Jason Mattera warns in his new book, Hagan’s is but one of many examples of how politicians claim to look out for the little guy but really focus on finding ways to force taxpayers to subsidize their lavish lifestyles.

    It’s time conservatives stand up for capitalism and crack down on Crapitalists like Kay Hagan
