You got to love this. We all know that there are times when the taxes we pay are used to help the party in power campaign for others, but I think this is horrible and I hope you agree. We remember the fact that when the government took over GM, they did so by changing the way that stocks work by allowing the unions to benefit and other stockholders to be paid pennies on the dollar for their stock. But, now that We the People own 61% of the company, the company should stay out of politics. Of course, should is a word that many forget. Gotta love that GM (Government Motors) is using money that it could be using to pay back the taxpayers to hand out campaign donations. I really don’t care what party is benefiting from it. I think it is wrong for taxpayer money to be used in this way. IIRC, Ford is still the strongest of the US automakers and the only one not to accept government aid. So, I wonder how well the others are handling their money if they don’t realize that they are using OUR money to play politics.
This is from Hot Air who has a great article that explains how donations enable them to make tons of money by having contracts throw their way…and not just the automakers do this. The Ouroboros revisited
