.... we hand a billion dollars over to these auto dealers, Congress wants to hand over $2Billion more to them and what we got in trade for our tax money is a pile of junk that we are going to send to the crusher to make scrap iron. And the lefties in Congress and White House are all huffing and puffing about what a great deal it is. It's a resounding success. Best money they've ever spent. Not to mention the $65.1Billion they gave them before the auto companies went bankrupt.

Let me see if I got the numbers right: 1,125,000 tons of scrap iron for $3billion = $2666.66/ton.

You have to admit, they are consistant.

What's so fucking stupid about this whole deal is the typical govenment thinking, or LACK of thinking of it's constituents!!! If they gave a damn about US....the 65 billion + 3 Billion to CfC's.... COULD have helped 15 MILLION people get a new car....an still put the 68 billion into GM'S bank account!!! But no, Gm get's the cash...we get screwed....and pay the tab!!!
Thank you to all who voted for "change"!!!
