GOP leaders hope they've quashed the Solyndra rebellion

At least three House Energy and Commerce Committee Republicans had publicly expressed reservations about the GOP-backed “No More Solyndras Act” during the past week. They griped, to varying degrees, about a provision that would effectively end the loan guarantee program — and argued that it needs to be reformed, not killed. …

The GOP infighting was not lost on The Wall Street Journal editorial board, which lambasted the Republican lawmakers who have raised concerns about the bill, calling out Texas Reps. Joe Barton and Michael Burgess and Georgia’s Phil Gingrey by name.

“Republicans will be fiscal frauds if they renew the very money-losing energy programs they attacked Barack Obama for,” the WSJ wrote in an editorial that appeared online Wednesday night and in print Thursday. “When the next Solyndra goes bankrupt, voters will have more than Mr. Obama to blame.”
