Now that Obama (excuse me the government) owns 61 percent of General Motors, “they” will decide what you and I should drive. We should drive a “green” vehicle, the Volt. Forget that may NOT be what we choose to drive — it’s best for the country.

GM “claims” to have repaid the $67 billion in Tarp fund they received. But they did it with additional government money. That’s sort of like my saying I paid off my Visa bill but I used my MasterCard to do it.

The majority of that money went into this “lemon”, the Volt. To date GM has sold approximately 7,000 Volts, the majority to other government agencies. As a taxpayer you have invested approximately $260,000 in every Volt that has been sold.

It’s time to return GM to its dealers and the stock-buying public.

More Obama “change” we can do without.
