Dems: Bush-era Loan Deserves Same Scrutiny as Solyndra 27 Oct 2011 Congressional Democrats have asked House investigators to expand their probe of the Obama Administration's ill-fated loan to Solyndra to cover another speculative federal lending effort -- this one approved under President [sic] Bush.

"There is also no good rationale for ignoring the $267 million loan to Open Range," said the letter, signed by Reps. Henry Waxman (D-Calif.), Diana DeGette (D-Colo.), and Edward Markey (D-Mass.). "Your reaction to the Open Range bankruptcy could not be more different than your reaction to the Solyndra bankruptcy." [Oh, but it is.
