  •  What I don't hear these GOP numbnuts decrying (14+ / 0-)

    are the billions of dollars invested by state governments to attract the foreign automakers such as Toyota, Nissan, Honda, BMW, etc.

    I recall that Toyota received over $800 million in incentives from the state of Kentucky to locate its plant in Georgetown in the mid 1980s, and similar sums have been used as bait to other manufacturers.

    The GOP sees two advantages in destroying the Detroit's automakers.  First, it will destroy the UAW, and second, it will undermine the argument that health care reform is needed in order to make American companies more competitive.
