It's political BS like your own post that has kept the Delaware plant from opening... so please, take a minute to absorb the grand irony of your argument.
It is financial BS really. The government loan was predicated on Fisker raising a certain amount of capital on their own. See the idea is the private investors must be satisfied it is a good idea. They were not satisfied. Fisker did not raise enough private funds. The government did not give them the loan. It all seems legitimate to me.
