  •  Wage suppression (6+ / 0-)
    I think it was here on kos that I first saw someone (perhaps Kos himself?) distill Republican philosophy down to one thing: cheap labor.  This Republican opposition to bailing out our biggest manufacturing sector is clearly designed to suppress wages for all American workers.  I have used this explanation to try to help friends understand why congresscritters like these 18 scumbags would oppose a bailout that's 2% of the size of the bank bailout even though allowing the auto industry to go under would cause a domino effect that would affect everyone but the super-rich.
