    A prime example of Crony Capitalism. GE Forcing employees to drive Chevy Volt.

    Much ado about nothing.
    Or are you wanting the govt to regulate what cars employees are made to drive while being paid by their employer?

    "Crony Capitalism" usually refers to Government collusion with private companies, not 2 companies colluding together.

    Why shouldn't GE buy whatever vehicles they want for their fleet?

    Now Chevy Volts are allowed to be driven in the HOV lanes with only the driver inside. What a corrupt sham!!!

    GE bought all those Volts for some reason, now they have to do something with them.

    Government Motors, Government Electric. No difference.

    And if you think the Obama regime had nothing to do with the Chevy Volt and General Electric, your obviously not paying attention.

    Maybe I'll get concerned when companies start forcing their employees to buy a car they might not want.

    Wait a minute, now a private sector company can't enforce rules on its employees?

    Or is it just that it's a Chevy Volt and those are bad words?

    So, you think that the "Obama regime" forced GE to buy Volts for their corporate fleet?
