Frank, if the Toyota Camry, is built, in america, with the most american parts, then Toyota deserves the largest tax break, because it is building the most american car......

ALL foreign companies get major tax breaks then when they are up some of them move, not all but alot of them do. We have had 2 foreign companies do that in my area in the same building. Volkswagon did it first, as soon as their tax breaks were up they closed the plant and moved to another location then Sony moved in and did the exact same thing.

Ford is recalling nearly 600,000 Windstar vans--it seems the rear axle will corrode and break in use.

GM is moving truck production from Mexico to Michigan--because they were offered tax incentives.

JCI is building a battery plant in my little town--tax incentives again.

My company is closing a plant in Canada and moving it to Michigan--want to guess why?

These are all "American" companies FYI

Not for anything, but Toyota is recalling 1 million Corollas and Matrix vehicles. Stalling for no reason.

American companies should get bigger and better tax breaks than foreign companies. Harley Davidson kept its plant in York Pa due to tax breaks, they wanted to move it down south.

Ford Transit. Kinda cool and enviro-friendly (size). I have to say, I like the LOOKS of the new Fords.

Saw a Ford F-150 Raptor. Really cool looking.
