Thanks to the Oblamer bailout of the stimulus sucking, union dominated Big Three, working class taxpayers continue to pay for any success by Ford, Govt Motors, & Chrysler. After the bailout, I vowed never to buy a vehicle from the Big Three & intend to keep that promise. Stop this madness in Nov 2014!

I would love to see it happen as they deserve it especially since they were the only USA car manufacturer to get taxpayer help and have us lose even more money like GM did because of their stock value dropping and they have no plans of giving back the money given to them.
