Am I understanding the process of a typical Bain takeover in that the company comes in, pulls out all of the assets, fires the employees and files for bankruptcy? If this is correct, how are they able to loot the employees pension fund and stick taxpayers with the bill?

Nuclear Plant Has Been Leaking For Four Years

According to the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Entergy Corp has allowed highly radioactive waste to leak into a contained area at the FitzPatrick nuclear power plant for the last four years.

The FitzPatrick plant is near Oswego, New York, but the NRC has said that the leak "poses no immediate risks to any residents or the environment."
