Another Vogtle Reactor Deadline Passes: Taxpayer Advocates Warn Government Keeps Pushing Bad Deal That Wall Street Won't Touch

WASHINGTON, July 2, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Think Washington has learned its lesson after Solyndra? Think again. The nonpartisan budget watchdog group Taxpayers for Common Sense (TCS) pointed out today that another deadline has passed for the U.S. government, Southern Company, and other entities involved in the controversial Vogtle nuclear reactor project to reach agreement on loan guarantee terms.

Ryan Alexander, president, Taxpayers for Common Sense, said:  "This whole thing has the stink of another Solyndra-like goose egg for American taxpayers. Wall Street is sending every possible signal that investors would be ill-advised to hop on the Vogtle bandwagon and yet Washington is taking exactly the opposite tack:  bending over backwards to find a way to put taxpayers on the hook, no matter how bad the terms. We say: Enough is enough. There has been ample time to work out a deal here. Now that we know Wall Street wants no part of it, we think it's time for prudent people in D.C. to follow suit and put the interests of taxpayers first."
