I was astonished at the implausible reasoning of the workers at the Wentzville, Mo G.M. plant
regarding the loans to the auto industry.
Is it possible that the local population is unaware of the fact that the U. S. auto industry
is responsible for one in seven jobs in the country and therefore vital to the overall economy?
Counting related industries, jobs are in the millions.
Are these people ignorant of the fact that few if any Republicans supported the loans to the auto
industry?
How is it possible for anyone to come to the conclusion that the Obama administration sought these loans merely to buy votes?
Prior to the stimulus package and the auto loans, our country was on track to suffer the second "Great Depression" in 83 years.
The U.S. is still recovering from this greatest recession since the Great Depression as a result
of the borrowing,spoending, tax cuts and wars of the Bush administration and now the workers at G.M. want to vote in the same economic policies that they themselves have so recently suffered
under. How is this possible?
I seriously doubt that Wentzville will ever acknowledge or appreciate what President Obama has accomplished, and the obstructionism (along with
character assassination) by the opposition that he overcome with dignity.
Recall one of the Commnandments, Thou shall not bear false witness (lie).
Thank you for your time.

Bailout is only a bailout and it may not give success, and can trouble future auto-industry workers.

GM is no different as auto-manufacturing co. by receiving bailout.

The Michigan people know that all along.
