Clandestine Bailout Of Big 3 US Automakers Passes

You gotta hand it to the lobbyists and representatives who engineered a $25 billion bailout for the big 3 US automakers yesterday. While everyone has been rightly concentrating on the mother of all bailouts, another bailout sailed through Congress with nary an opposition. So another $25 billion of taxpayer money is going down the drain to prop up a dying industry. Both McCain & Obama support this idea. It's not their money so what do they care.

    Interesting - Rep. John Campbell voted "present" on this bill. I guess it is better than a "yes".

    BTW, it was tucked into a Homeland Security bill. Clandestine indeed.

    Chaz

    I swear, Campbell is afraid of his own shadow a lot of times. I guess he has something in common with Obama now...voting present so he doesn't have to take a stand on a hard issue.
