    I just heard on local radio that Senator Lamar Alexander is proposing legislation that would take the shares of GM and Chrysler from the treasury department and divide them up amongst the taxpayers. I'm sorry I don't have a link but I'll try to find one after I get caught up at work this morning. I think this would be an excellent idea and wonder what others think. Thoughts?

    Why would I want shares in failed companies that make no money?

    Its scandalous that this happened under that idiot obama.

    Chrysler I am not sure about, but GM as what is known at this stage as, 'Newco', has more than a decent chance of becoming viable. There are a lot of variables, but it is not at all out of the question. Their chances would be greatly enhanced if Washington could be removed from the equation. Doubt that will happen, however. The Prophet wants control of GM for his social agenda. That said, proposing no alternative at all and/or not objecting to what is going on is not wise.

    As a owner of chevy's and cadillac's since 1964 I fear I will not own another as I will not buy a auto that is owned buy our goverment.

    Bad enough politicians and greenies have put to many restrictions on our once world admired auto industry. They had to finish it off also.
    Scumbags!!
