Corporations Lining Up for Congressional Handouts

And they are distributing YOUR MONEY alphabetically, readers.

First up, the letter A!

"$25 billion in loan guarantees to assist the ailing auto industry"

"Congress receptive to aid for automakers" by David M. Herszenhorn, New York Times News Service | September 18, 2008

WASHINGTON - After a series of government interventions in the private markets, one seemingly more astonishing than the next, lawmakers found themselves confronted yesterday with the question of when and where to draw the line on future aid.

I know where: at the PEOPLE!!!!

Did you get a foreclosure bailout, American homeowner?

But with billions of dollars in financial backing already authorized for Wall Street, and with Election Day fast approaching, congressional leaders seemed uninterested in denying help to large employers of blue-collar Americans.

Yeah, like the $ is going to us!!


Fucking New York Times.

Even as lawmakers in both parties unleashed a barrage of questions about the wisdom of a government rescue for the American International Group, support seemed to be growing quickly on Capitol Hill for $25 billion in loan guarantees to assist the ailing auto industry.

And both presidential candidates, Senators John McCain and Barack Obama, have voiced support for the loan guarantees - an unsurprising stance, given the critical importance of the main auto-producing states, Michigan and Ohio, to the electoral map this fall.

Sigh! One party in Washington, and that is the CORPORATE PARTY!!!!

The chief executives of the three big American automakers - General Motors, Ford, and Chrysler - met yesterday afternoon with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

Isn't it nice that THEY can get ACCESS to Pelosi, but the antiwar and impeachment crowd are told to fuck off?!!!

When they emerged, they expressed optimism that the loan guarantees would be included as part of a budget resolution that is needed to finance government operations through the end of the year.

Well, I'm GLAD the PIGGY AUTO EXECS are happy?

How many MILLIONS are going to them, huh?

"The support that we got was again very encouraging," said Robert L. Nardelli, the chairman of Chrysler.

Yeah, $25 billion would make me feel pretty good, too!!!!

Pelosi yesterday sharply criticized the Bush administration over the $85 billion bailout of AIG, saying it was evidence of mismanagement by President Bush. But she expressed strong support for the automakers' loan guarantees, which would be used to help the companies meet new fuel-efficiency standards that Congress adopted last year.


Use this for fuel, bitch: PFFFFFFFFFTTTT!

What a fucking HYPOCRITICAL WHORE!!!!!!!!!!!

Republican congressional leaders, too, said they were in favor of helping the automakers.

Sigh! One party in Washington, and that is the CORPORATE PARTY!!!!

Still, some fiscal conservatives reacted angrily to the prospect of more taxpayer money being used to prop up private companies.

Yeah, and seeing as the PRO-BAILOUT, PRO-CORPORATE WELFARE, New York Times here is in favor of the looting of the American taxpayer, OUR POSITION is reduced to ONE SENTENCE at the END of the PIECE!!

FUCK YOU, NYT!!!!!!!
