Payoff?

GM's union raked in the dough from the GM stock sale doing far better than investors and taxpayers.

The boon for the union fits the pattern established when the White House pushed GM into bankruptcy and steered it through the courts in a way that consistently put the interests of the union ahead of many suppliers, dealers and investors — stakeholders that ordinarily would have fared as well or better under the bankruptcy laws.

"Priority one was serving the interests of the UAW" when the White House's auto task force engineered the bankruptcy, said Glenn Reynolds, an analyst at CreditSights. The stock offering served to show once again how the White House has handsomely rewarded its political allies, he said.

  • Wow gert, you may need a few extra sandwiches for your picnic but even you should grasp this. First of all, I didn't say anything about McCain or Palin. Second of all, do you HONESTLY believe elections are not bought......or just that wonder boy was too dumb to do it?

    Guess what....when Crapy suggested that the election was bought, it just means that she resents that Obama won, is suggesting his win was "bought" and that she would prefer to see McCain and Palin winning.....you too,I imagine.
    I did mention this because of the obvious bias and prejudice involved with this particular question.
    If it makes you happy to insult me, go ahead and have some fun with it.
    Your insults are really a compliment. If you get it,...which I am sure you don't.
