Actually it was June.<quoted text>
Can you please provide a link? Everywhere I have seen stated that the plant closed in December 2008 which GM announced in October 2008.
"The announcement by then-GM president Rick Wagoner that Janesville would be one of three plants to close came at a meeting of shareholders in early June 2008, according to a Chicago Tribune report at the time."
but don't let truth get in the way of Republican awesomeness
