Chrysler files for bankruptcy protection - Yahoo! Finance
That's good, a fresh piece of "slate".
Yet Obama guarantees in his recent speech that Chrysler and GM are not finished. He plans to throw 8 billion in taxpayers money in effort to save Chrysler. Fail.
Sooo can I get an 09' Camaro AND a Charger now? I mean, considering I'm paying for them to operate.
My god, is it really that hard to just let them fail. I mean, even after the 8 billion dollars is gone, Chrysler will be reduced to a nationalized automaker, which will suck more.
Two years to late. Excellent..... Didnt Obama promise us that after we gave them billions of dollars all would be saved????? If we make it through the next 4 years without becoming a full blown socialist country and he gets re-elected I am leaving.
I need you all to do research on what is our next best option as far as countries to change citizenship.
I've been thinking about it, and they all suck.
Ill take to the damn hills. Build me a sweet as log cabin and hunt/grow my own damn food.
Not when they purchase 55% of the debt. If I am not mistaken didn't the UAW's health care group purchase some of Chrysler's debt?
They just need a few more billions. Really, this is the last time.
What a joke.
The division of the union that covers benefits (I believe for the retired union members pension/healthcare/etc) is taking Chrysler stock in lieu of the regular payments. They will then sell the stock to provide the benefits.
What are they gonna be able to buy, a few packs of band-aids, some neosporin and some gauze. tell everyone they just need to rub some Tussin on it.
Seriously... If a business sucks, the government should have no right to take money from successful businesses and other hard working citizens in the form of taxes to bail them out. I like the old chryslers and dodge, but they were done building good cars a long time ago, and need to make room for people who can do a better job.
Obama's platform during campaign was all about change, and changing america for the bettter - so why does he insist on keeping a dying, stagnant company alive on our dime? Time to just pull the plug, and let them fend for themselves. We as Americans know too little of financial hardships, and few of us really know the value of the dollar - apparently that lack of knowledge is not limited to us working class folk, but is extended to the big guys as well.
I think that Obama truly believes that we have to take all major industry over and allow the government to run them to be successful.
Try Malaysia . . . $100k in bank makes you an honorary citizen. Yes you will need bodyguards.
Only $8 billion more..................................
Until this happens again four months later.
