This country is 200+ yrs old. Companies have been starting and failing all this time. Let's face it, some make it, some don't. Poor management, uncertain mkt. greedy unions. All can be a factor.

Yeah, Instead of investing in a 50 year old smelter they should have invested in windfarms & solar generation. The taxpayer subsidies are much, much better.

“The USW has long believed that the goals of stopping the threat of climate change and creating thousands of clean energy jobs can and should be two sides of the same coin.”

Sorry Ormet workers, but you are a casualty of your nation's and your Union's choice to embark on a course that will continue to impoverish the American people.

The bill would be paid if the company could make money. There is little market for their product in a weak and stagnant economy. Get the economy moving and Ormet at least would have a chance. That is unlikely for another 3 to 4 years. Obama hasn't been able to do it in 5 so I don't think he or his party will in another 3.

What part of Ormet not paying it's bills is hard to understand? I don't care much for Gov. Kasich either, but Ormet not paying it's bills was a mismanagement problem. Product costs more to make then selling prices = company gone broke. Yes, it is that simple.
