Right - our products going into their countries are not accepted. But I don't think the Kias & Hyundais are coming in here tariff-free, are they?

Yeah I'll do that, right after I clean the crisper bin of my refrigerator.

Don't make claims you can't substantiate.

Good luck to them. Losing GM,Ford, or Chrysler would be a big blow to this country economically and symbolically. I don't agree with all they've done,but I think this bailout is worth it.

I'm glad the UAW has been reigned in also. I'm not neccessarily anti-union,but the UAW was out of control IMO.

Alot of people are saying let them fail let them file chapter 11 and restructure.
Ok let me ask if that happened would you buy a car from a company that filed chapter 11 bankruptcy? By any one of the three doing this it would most likely make it had to get factory parts for the cars/trucks because the suppliers would want to get paid and may not. That would also effect the warranty on the vehicle.

Yet many people are fleeing these states for the south with absolutely no desire to move back? Crazy, isn't it?

I've lived in the south and traveled the south on business. It ain't all Tobacco Road.

Many Hyundai and Kia cars are built here in America. For some countries, American imports are heavily tariffed to artificially raise their prices to protect their own country's products. If this bailout deal breaks the UAW then the people that it will hurt the most is organized crime. Do any of you remember the last time an auto company was bailed out? It was Chrysler and they paid back the bailout in full. It isn't just American car companies that are suffering sales losses.
