Wednesday is Great American Auto Bailout Day at the Democratic National Convention.
Cue “Fanfare for the Common Man” and rev up the Government Motors engines. Wednesday is Great American Auto Bailout Day at the Democratic National Convention. Party propagandists accept able a prime-time-ready blur touting the “rescue’s” allowances for American workers. UAW President Bob King will sing the savior-in-chief’s praises.
But like all of the bread-and-butter success belief bogus by the White House, the $85 billion government advertisement is a big fat farce.
“I said I accept in American workers, I accept in this American industry, and now the American auto industry has appear roaring back,” Obama bragged on the attack trail. Here’s the annoying adventure they won’t acquaint you:
GM is already afresh flirting with defalcation admitting massive government purchases propping up its sales figures. GM banal is rock-bottom. Losses abide to be revised in the amiss direction. According to The Detroit News, “The Treasury Department says in a new address the government expects to lose added than $25 billion on the $85 billion auto bailout. That’s 15 percent college than its antecedent forecast.”
The claims that GM paid aback its taxpayer-funded loans “in full” — a adventure peddled in attack ads anecdotal by Hollywood amateur Tom Hanks — were debunked by the Treasury Department’s TARP babysitter this summer. GM still owes about $30 billion of the $50 billion it received, and its lending arm still owes about $15 billion of the added than $17 billion it received. Bailout babysitter Mark Modica of the National Legal and Policy Center adds, “In accession to U.S. taxpayers anteing up, Canada put in over $10 billion, and GM was adequate of about $28 billion of bondholder obligations as UAW claims were protected. That’s an advance of about $90 billion to the antithesis sheet, and the aggregation still lags the competition.”
While the Obama administering wraps the auto bailout in red, white and blue, it’s adopted workers and across plants that are accomplishment redistributive rewards.
GM has added its accomplishment accommodation in China by an estimated 55 percent afterwards the bailout, according to industry watchers. GM’s Dan Akerson crowed at the Beijing auto appearance beforehand this year: “One of our aims is to advice abound a new bearing of automotive engineers, designers and leaders appropriate actuality in China.” The U.S. auto giant’s ventures with the Communist administration accommodate Shanghai OnStar Telematics Co., Ltd.; GM China Advanced Technical Center; FAW-GM Light Duty Commercial Vehicle Co., Ltd., in Harbin, Heilongjiang; FAW-GM’s Changchun bulb in Changchun, Jilin; FAW-GM Hongta Yunnan Automobile Accomplishment Co., Ltd., in Qujing, Yunnan; and Shanghai Chengxin Used Car Operation and Administration Co., Ltd.
In Europe, the UAW’s appointee to the Government Motors Board of Directors, Steve Girsky, foolishly pushed the admiral to authority assimilate GM’s declining German-based Opel AG. The Great American Auto Bailout has been subsidizing this hemorrhaging action while Obama bootless to bear on his 2008 attack affiance to deliver plants like the one in GOP carnality presidential applicant Paul Ryan’s hometown of Janesville, Wis. According to Forbes magazine, “GM Europe, comprised mostly of Opel and its sister brand, Vauxhall, absent $617 actor in the aboriginal bisected of 2012, on top of a $747 actor accident in 2011 and a $1.8 billion accident in 2010. In all, GM has absent about $17 billion in Europe aback 1999.”
While Team Obama lambastes GOP battling Mitt Romney for outsourcing, Government Motors is now planning to advance $1 billion over the abutting bristles years — not in America, but in Russia. That’s on top of $7 billion absolute in China, abutting to $1 billion in Mexico, and $600 actor for a shirt advocacy accord with Manchester United, the British soccer club.
The DNC will put a rank-and-file U.S. autoworker on date to aback up Big Labor’s cheerleading of the deal. Rest assured, this animal absorber will not acquaint admirers how Obama and the abutment administration colluded to debauchee defalcation law and shaft some 20,000 nonunion Delphi auto genitalia workers. The abandoned victims saw their pensions abrade by up to 70 percent; their bloom allowances disappeared. The aboriginal adult is radio silent. Obama consigliere Valerie Jarrett ducked questions about the Delphi abuse from The Washington Times actuality in Charlotte.
Only in a fantasyland area America has 57 states, “JOBS” is a three-letter chat and bailouts are “achievements” does Obama’s accomplishment algebraic add up. “Now I appetite to do the aforementioned affair with accomplishment jobs, not aloof in the auto industry, but in every industry,” Obama vows. God advice the American worker.
