One step closer…Gov’t Motors (GM)
I’m sick to my stomach. The UAW wins again. Why in the hell do they get any say in what happens to GM and Chrysler? They caused the problem to begin with by pricing wages much higher than necessary which led to jobs going overseas and plants shutting down in the USA. At least Ford saw it coming a little bit and I have nothing but respect for them.
They said, “No thanks” to the President’s bailout funds. Good for them.
Today GM filed for bankruptcy protection. The UAW was in support of it, of course. To me it shows how much power their lobby has in American politics.
What was that Obama railed against during his campaign? Lobbyists? Nice work, POTUS. Please, move us increasingly closer to some bastardized or thinly veiled version of facism, socialism and/or communism. With the gov’t beginning to buy the auto industry, the banks and soon the media, we might as well be living in Germany in the late 30s.
I think I need to throw up now.
ADDENDUM: 6/3/09 – I do realize that the bailout money started with Bush and I wasn’t pleased about it then either. So although I do detest that BHO continued on with this, it started with Bush. Idiots. Both of them.
