    They not only want to take nuclear waste from other states; they also want to take it from other countries.
    It seems that they are not very economically strong with the drop in their stock.
    We all know will be stuck with the bill, and garbage if they go under.

    EnergySolutions has been run into the ground, so to speak, and will soon become "our" responsibility as the state is forced to take over this huge pile of poison. Meanwhile the inept leaders walk away with millions of $ in severance. Ah, the miraculous American "free" market.

    Hey, EnergySolutions must have been a great idea because so many of the repub lawmakers backed it all up.
    Individualize the profits and socialize the risk, it's their motto.

    Not to worry, Mike Lee, ES's former attorney, is now in a position to rescue them from their own chicanery, ineptitude, and demise with some porculent subsidy or bailout. I'm thinking Lee's buddy, J.P. Morgan Chase, would see ES as a good investment. And it would cost a whole lot less than the $2 billion pocket change they just lost.

    ES is ripe for Bain Capital to come swooping in, borrowing millions and loading it up with debt, laying off the employees, stealing the pension and medical funds, filing bankruptcy, and netting the Cayman Island and Swiss banks huge deposits. So who's gonna clean up all that radioactive waste? Certainly Bain Capital would never get their white gloves dirty.
