The plan is: they sell their companies to us and walk away with nothing.
Let them go bankrupt and we take over the plants, provide jobs retooling them to be competitive and we decide what happens, the “plan” for our own money.
Quote from another site:“The recent appearance before Congress from the three C.E.O.’s of our automobile giants was a dazzling display of rank ignorance. There they sat, side by side, asking for immediate financial help from our already over-extended government. For decades their industry fought against, usually successfully, mileage standards and safety standards that would have made them more competitive in today’s market. Now they need our immediate money to just have a change at survival.~anon ”
Yes. And now why but why would a group of auto executives have fought tooth and nail to buck mileage standards especially? Hmmmm…which “cousin” industry to automobiles would hugely profit if fuel standards were kept low and inefficient….
*Best imitation of SNL's “Church Lady”*
“Hmmm….who could it be????? SATAN!!”
Pretty much. Or Satan's little helper aka “Bigoil”… I swear to god the arrows point back to that monopoly every single time we find more bad news about our nation. That small cloister of super-rich profiteers have almost singlehandedly brought our nation to its knees. And the irony of ironies is that we are paying for their hostile corporate takeover of sovereign Iraq as they undermine us in a dozen different ways here at home. The auto industry the chief example of that over the last several decades.
If those goddamned CEOs want a bailout they damn well better go right back to those a-holes they cut deals with years ago to “spread the wealth to a sacred few” and keep us non-competitive and ask THEM for a bailout. Yes. Those auto manufacturers can march right up to BigOil and ask them for the dinero. But of course why would BigOil then have the incentive to loan them the money?
I think Congress should investigate BigOil's hand in bribing or otherwise coercing our auto manufacturers to destablize our economy and wreck their businesses for quick profits. I think once that evidence is found, Congress should put a stay on BigOil profits this quarter and quarters to come? and shunt that money over to retooling the auto industry. Teach them once and for all that bribery, coercion to a nation's detriment (they had reasonable belief to know the pickle we're in today was coming and when) in order to fatten their bank accounts is ILLEGAL, or should be…and penalties should be levied. One of which is to restabilize the auto industry.
Make BigOil pay. They were behind this all the time..
