    The great working class heroes of government motors are sticking it to the little guy.  Free from standard bankruptcy by the intervention of the divine Barry the "New GM" has decided that all those flawed products built by the noble workers of the UAW no longer are the responsibility of those same workers - the majority holders of the "New GM."  People who make far more than the average industrial worker, people who are guaranteed "platinum" healthcare - despite what the divine Barry says about it, people who will retire young while all the rest of us are slaving at hauling the cart built defective cars and now want holy dispensation.

    They will get it.  Blessed Barry.

    Notice:

    The same people who would defend corporate tax breaks are now bashing a corporation for using perfectly legal means to avoid paying for their mistakes.  Oh, wait, but they are blaming it on the front-line blue-collar employees who have nothing to do with the decisions made by the corporate lawyers.

    Incredible.

      The decision to bypass the long established bankruptcy laws was a consequence of the power and influence of the giant, rich and corrupt UAW on the equally corruptible Democrat Party.  Why do Democrats hate working people like teachers, policemen and firemen?  Why do UAW leaders(the actual owners of the "New GM") hate ordinary people, like the ones who buy mid-sized sedans like the Impala?  Why do Democrats hate working people who need a good car, built by people who can relate to regular working people? 

      UAW members have retirement and health care benefits that regular working people can only dream about.  UAW platinum benefits are exempt from Barry's attacks on the "too" comfortable.  A floor mopper making $60,000 a year?  That is a brilliant way to cripple and destroy a vital industry or to transfer it to the Japanese.

      By the way, if one thinks about it objectively, one will realize that corporations do not pay taxes.  They collect them.  Why do Democrats hate working people and retirees so much that they want corporations to collect more of their money?   When a corporate tax increases it means less money is available for all kinds of other productive and humanitarian uses, like, but not limited to, capital investment, increased wages, increased dividends, increased bonuses, defrayed insurance costs, 401k matching, hiring, etc....

      It is a good example of what Bastiat wrote about in "What is Seen and What is Not Seen."

    Actually, corporate encourages engineers to "Value Engineer" systems ,(cheap).The blue collar worker installs the parts,white collar Engineers design them,everything from painted,un-painted to what material they are made out of.The quest for profits is what screws up American cars not the person on the line.

      The man-hour cost per vehicle does have an impact on the engineering of that car.  Every time the distant and impersonal national government decides what kind of cars should be made available for purchase it compels cost cutting measures.  When an elitist President decides that Americans "can drive what they want."  He decides that more money must be designed out of the next generation of vehicles. 

      Why do Democrats hate ordinary people and deny them the cars they really want?  Why don't Democrats trust regular people to make wise decisions about their own lives instead of imposing their will on everyone?  Why is the Democrat President so insulated from everyday life that he lectures ordinary people on the cars they drive while destroying the industry that fuels their livelihood?
