Chevy Volt fiasco


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.
