    How about we come up with a tax system that does not penalize production, and only taxes consumption? You know like a fair tax. Maybe the answer isn't more government trying to help, while supporting governments unmanageable size by a $5k tax on every automobile made in the U.S.

    For some background on Bloom, here is a WSJ article on him from when he was named the the automotive task force: Who Is Ron Bloom? - Real Time Economics - WSJ.

    I am not sure what to make of this, though for some reason I find it interesting. On the one hand, manufacturing in this country is in trouble that goes beyond the recession, but on the other, just how much can the government do?
    Silly Redress, it is not about Librul Government accomplishing anything; that is not what Libruls are all about. It's about pretending to care and making it appear that you are trying.

    Since when have Libruls ever expected you to judge them by their accomplishments? It is merely how you FEEL and that you CARED.

    Oh yes by all means; nothing like a trade war to spur development on eh?

    While we are at it, why not slap huge tarrifs on imported goods; that will help also!
