Tag: Taxpayer Bailouts
By Corinthian Scales, Section News
For the rational mind, this shouldn't bode well for the Obankruptcy Downgrade² administration.
According to the piece, "To counter the severe slump in European sales, (Fiat CEO Sergio) Marchionne is considering building Chrysler models in Italy, including Jeeps, for export to North America. The Italian government is evaluating tax rebates on export goods to help Fiat. Marchionne may announce details of his plan as soon as Oct. 30, the people said."
But, we're stuck on stupid in Michigan. As I wrote before .. Bob King, won't have so much as a say about any of this in the nation-states ongoing struggle to not run out of other peoples money while funding their global Socialist Utopias.

Oh, joy... this will be a big 'ol ball of fun with tracking donation origins to campaign committees.
As the Fiat and Chrysler automakers go global, so do their unions.
Bob King, you better dust them prized knee pads of yours off. Socialist Italy just declared you their new fluffer.

Reading today's JOA News, is like reading a DC Comic.
Although it didn't make a net profit last year, Chrysler Group LLC will give bonuses to its employees in the United States and Canada to recognize their efforts over the past year.
"It would have been inexcusable to not recognize what our people have done," Marchionne told analysts, explaining that the board agreed that rewarding Chrysler workers was more prudent than reducing the loss on the bottom line.
Now, how cool is that? In other words, next time your household runs in the red ink, go out and have a steak and lobster dinner and just tell yourself that you deserve a reward. And, oh, by the way... the folks at the next table? You pick up the tab. Damn, if Marchionne doesn't illustrate to folks that the Italians have been socialists since the days of Moussolini, nothing will.
