So the other day I gushed about my man crush with GM. I love Chevy and have always rooted against Ford. But with the government bailout of GM and the destruction of 100 year old bankruptcy law by the administration, I left my love on the side of the road and embraced Ford.
I was only too happy to have GM pay back their money.
Turns out GM is only playing with my heart:
General Motors is running ads on all the major this week claiming it has repaid its bailout from the taxpayers “in full.” But the claim isn’t standing up to scrutiny from lawmakers and watchdogs who have found that the automaker was able to repay the bailout money only by dipping into a separate pot of bailout funds.
They didn’t pay that money back. They stole more money from more people and just played us with a shell game!
Bastards. Back to the side of the road for you.
Then again, it’s Union thugs working in cohoots with the government. What should I expect?
