- Unions need to be marginalized at the big three auomakers
- The US Government will then lose MUCH more in tax payments from GM, Ford and Chrysler than the Big 3 are asking BACK from them (GOOD!)
- This upcoming one-party-run Big Government session will almost certainly be far too interfering & meddling with the private auto businesses when they start feeling like *THEY* are "owed" something for *OUR TAXPAYER MONEY*
- GM, Ford and Chrysler will hopefully come out of this MUCH stronger, as they already had done in previous, even recent, troubling times
I have already gone on record, and will reiterate here once more, that my next automobile will be a first-release Chevrolet Volt plug-in electric car. I made this decision back when oil hit the insane price of $100/barrel this summer. Oil STILL went up nearly another 50% after that, peaking at $147.27/barrel sometime in July. I know oil is back down to $42-43/barrel today, but – to me – I absolutely NEVER AGAIN want to be held hostage to an auto fuel which can be severely inflated and manipulated like oil/petroleum was this summer. It was absolutely ridiculous then, and it is still absolutely ridiculous now. I have ended a 30-mile round trip daily commute for work through negotiating with my employer so that I can work from home instead. And now my future automobile will be a plug-in electric for ALL of my remaining commuting. I will keep a Ford Escape Hybrid or Chevrolet Cobalt SS 31+mpg for longer trips.
That’s it. End of story.
