I'm not saying that. This government has been a ball and chain around business's neck for a long time and major industries like automobiles have been hit the worst. Both sides are full of shit.
Congress is pathetically humorous when it tries to even intelligently comment on what the effect their incestuous affair with the unions has been and the industry leaders are just as bad when they testify that this recent recession is the reason why they're in trouble.
They've been in trouble since the 70's.
Government, union bullshit AND mickey mouse management have all three turned the city that put the world on wheels into a financial joke. The worst possible thing that could happen would be for these congressional vultures to get their poisonous claws even further into these companies by loaning them money and then setting policy for them.
Also, like it or not the unions are choking these companies into unconsciousness. Don't even try to tell me otherwise. I saw it with my own 2 eyes. None of this changes the fact that the auto companies are burdened with mountainous layers of bureaucratic book larned managers who are concerned about everything except selling cars which BTW is kinda necessary if they wish to stay afloat.
