I am afraid that will not have the desired effect - the $40k cap.
That will depress the economy further and is tantamount to socialism.
These workers do a great job building cars and trucks. The problems are management and possibly union leaders too.
I wish you had the same anger toward the $2 trillion in loans to the financial industry in the last year or two. They are the ones who have destroyed the economy along with the ones the buy off in Washington.
Again, the big 3 cannot fail. They have a gun to our head, just like the financial industry, Paulson, and Bush.
Do this OR DIE!
I argue that $25B is far less than $2000B and it produces a tangible result.
I do believe conditions should be placed on all loans.
I do believe the CEOs should transition to new CEOs/boards. They have failed, especially the GM head. Ford CEO/board should be spared.
The CEO's that come on board should take the average salary of the worker's times 10.
