This is a joke- a complete joke.
Tough-talking Democrats trying to make us believe that they want the auto industry to have accountability before they hand over billions of dollars. They don't. This is about one thing: the failure of Unions in this country, the grip they have on U.S. manufacturers which has led to our dependence on imports.
Pelosi's going to "show them the money" allright and this grandstanding is tedious and childish.
I drive a Ford, I like it, but if American car companies go broke- it's their own fault.
We MUST be able to have manufacturing capabilities in the country. It's not good enough to rely on trade partners. But this is a time to talk about Union pay and benefits, stupid government CAFE standards (which actually cause people to drive more, not less), and a ridiculously high corporate tax environment-- not about how to properly write grant request in order to get money from the rest of us.
Hello- Republicans-- Where are you?
