Despite the Solyndra loss and a few other defaults the program has shown a profit as of 2014 of over $30B. Since I have heard no "Scandals" since, I suspect that profit has grown. Plus clean energy continues to expand.
Phony Scandal #1 debunked.

Veteran Affairs Scandal.
This is a scandal all right, but not an Obama scandal. Problems at the VA hospital have been going on forever.

The Wikipedia page on this states that six different investigations of this problem were taken after it came to light, including one by the White House.

Among the problems cited by one or more of those investigations were:
Unrealistic wait time goals.
Insufficient staffing
Migration of aging veterans to Sun Belt states causing an excess of veterans in those areas.

All of this led to VA schedulers falsifying data to appear to be meeting the goals. Then there was the lack of controls to prevent this from happening and the lack of oversight by higher officials to identify the problem.

Operation Chokepoint Scandal.
Right. The ideological difference of being opposed to money laundering.
Not surprising that Trump has ended the program. I'm sure it was hurting his pals in the payday loan industry.

Like Obama lied to get ACA passed.
Lots of lies surround the Kenyan Kommie.

Actually, Phony Defense debunked.

$30b profit? No way, I thought, so did some searching. As expected, you're so far off the mark that it's comical. Did you mean $30m? Even that isn't correct, though, given the interest the gov has to pay on the loan to international investors.

Who cares about profit when you can make up for it with volume?

Yes, $30,000,000 is correct. My Mistake on the $30B.
The same article says this; Relative to the massive scale of the loans, the program is close to breaking even either way, but there's still a difference between profit and loss.
Dawn Selak, an Energy Department spokeswoman, said the goal of the agency's loan program was "not to make a profit," but that officials were managing the program in a fiscally responsible way.
and:
While Marron rejects what he calls the agency's "spin," he essentially agrees. He says the loans were intended to encourage private-sector research into clean technology. By the government's reckoning, the loan program has prevented some 14 million metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions. The fact that the loans are losing money is, in itself, "not an indictment" of the program, he said in an interview.

The fact is there were a few loans which went bad-particularly Solyndra-but there were many more which have been paid off with interest. If we lose a few million dollars, that is nothing compared to the benefits of a clean energy program.

I wonder how many million metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions would be prevented if illegal residents did not live in the USA?
