Default Re: Government taking over GM

I agree and disagree with what happend.

GM was asking for even more money, and have received much more money than any other automaker. Ford still hasn't taken a dime, have they? Just asking for money in reserve "just in case" still?

they apparently haven't got their sh#% straight, so something did need to be done.

as for the government taking over; I don't like that. Let them have some (or a lot?) of oversight, would be okay in my book, as long as it wasn't under their control.

guess we'll just hafta see how things pan out.

but it was interesting to hear that Toyota asked for money from the Japanese government... so atleast that does show that it is definitely affecting other countries.
