Do you agree with this move?

Rep. Steven C. LaTourette (R-OH) has successfully attached an amendment to a financial services bill (H.R. 3170) that would require Obama Motors to reverse its senseless, blatantly unconstitutional closings of thousands of prosperous family businesses across the country in the middle of a severe recession. It would restore all franchise agreements for auto makers now at least partially owned by the federal government

  • Here is one link within the article anon a tib bit from the link 100 House Members ask Senate to help auto dealers U.S. Rep. Steven C. LaTourette (R-OH) and 99 other House members today sent a letter to key Senate leaders encouraging them to retain House-passed language that will protect the economic rights of automobile dealers harmed during bankruptcy proceedings. The bipartisan letter, signed by 100 House members, was sent to Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), and top lawmakers on the Senate Appropriations Committee -- Chairman Daniel Inouye (D-HI) and Ranking Member Thad Cochran (R-MI).

  • Obama motors lol that's sick. Yes I agree with the move, I feel sorry for those people who lost their jobs by this, especially when you have a thriving business and they shut you down.


     I relate to this because pretty much the same thing happened to me last month, when CHASE BANK who took a government bailout, REFUSED to let my school stay in the building she was renting from the landlord who foreclosed on it, CHASE BANK would have rather have a empty building then to let us stay there and pay them something......and that something was a pretty penny.....but no the Judge ruled in CHASE BANKS favor and closed down a thriving school. Families lost their school employees lost their jobs.


    ......so I say go get em!
