Money buys money

General Motors lost $3.4 billion in the fourth quarter of 2009 and is still struggling to reorganize so the company can try to eke out a profit. This grim reality didn't stop GM from making hay last week for supposedly paying back a $6.7 billion government loan five years ahead of schedule. What was left unsaid was that the automaker used another kitty of taxpayer cash to pay off the earlier government loan. This is an accounting shell game, not progress. Previously unreleased documents supplied to The Washington Times reveal that GM specifically used funds it received from the Troubled Asset Relief Program to pay off the government loan. According to Neil Barofsky, the special inspector general for TARP, $4.7 billion of $6.7 billion - 70 percent - of what GM paid back came from TARP money the company received. "The one thing a lot of people overlook with this is where they got the money to pay the loan," Mr. Barofsky told Fox News' Neil Cavuto on Wednesday. "It isn't from earnings." The numbers are based on a quarterly report Mr. Barofsky's office provided to Congress last week.

I assume you can't find a coherent method to refute the information forwarded. Living down to your moniker again?  (Apr 20, 2010 | post #7)

Local and National Republicans on the same path, why?

Since you can't refute what I've said with fact, you resort to name calling and call an abrupt end to the disagreement. The tactic of the losing side....  (Apr 14, 2010 | post #21)

You get your news from a third party and I get mine from the trenches and that means I'm bitter and misinformed? Amazing. This bill as best as I can see has more to do with putting more control at the federal level in order to justify using interstate commerce as a defense when constitutional challenges come against the Obama care debacle.  (Apr 14, 2010 | post #19)

Your rant is so vert predictable from one that has no clue what he is ranting about. I get my information in real time in real life, not from move on or whatever other propagandists you obviously follow.  (Apr 12, 2010 | post #17)

Better tell your account that he or she is fired because you know how nuch this will help your small business. So small business person please tell me how this is going to give you any leverage. You will have less leverage than before due to mandates. You will be fined hould even one of your employees qualify for federal assistance and if your business can in any way be considered "construction " related you will have to toe the line with as few as five employees. Other businesses have a benchmark of 50 employees by the way. This law will do more to hurt the local economy. I haven't read the "transparency " bill, but if it is the same transparency Obama has lied about since his coronation, I'll pass.  (Apr 12, 2010 | post #15)

Pelosi said that we will find out what's in the bill as time passes. It has been reported and there are vidoe accounts of this that the democrat representative from FL has plainly stated that there is no mandate in the bill. So are you saying these people have read this bill which neither of them has a working knowledge thereof? I don't think you have any knowledge of what is in this bill either, nor do you have a clue what it does to small businesses.  (Apr 11, 2010 | post #8)
