Senate Republicans decided they don’t like the loan decided upon by the auto industry and the Bush Administration, although the previous bailouts were given with no strings attached and no oversight. We’ve since learned what a catastrophe that was.
Despite the fact that perhaps an additional 3 million people will lose jobs (I’m seeing some people lose theirs already), the UAW is still too powerful and must be stopped according to GOP insiders (as released through a note obtained by MSNBC).
If this deal doesn’t go through, I think those becoming homeless should get together and squat on the properties owned by the Republican Senators voting down this loan. I’m serious. Make the asshole Senators see the faces and the results of the damage they’ve done.
