    Again, you are being purposefully negative for partisan reasons; you have stated nothing that substantiates the idea that "this might not be true".

    TOLEDO, Ohio – General Motors Co. announced Tuesday it will invest about $2 billion in U.S. assembly and component plants, creating or preserving more than 4,000 jobs at 17 facilities in eight states.

    “We are doing this because we are confident about demand for our vehicles and the economy,” GM Chairman and CEO Dan Akerson said during an event at the 54-year-old Toledo Transmission Plant. “This new investment is on top of $3.4 billion and more than 9,000 jobs that GM has added or saved since mid-2009.”

    With Ohio Gov. John Kasich, U.S. Rep. Marcy Kaptur, D-Toledo, and Toledo Mayor Michael Bell in the audience, Akerson said GM will invest $204 million to retain about 250 jobs for an all-new, advanced 8-speed automatic transmission for future vehicles that offer customers improved fuel economy and outstanding performance.

    GM’s U.S. sales through the first four months of the year are up 24.8 percent over 2010, and the company last week reported its fifth-consecutive profitable quarter since emerging from bankruptcy reorganization in July 2009.

    "The UAW's goal has been to return all laid-off workers to active status and see the company begin hiring again,” said Joe Ashton, UAW vice president – GM Department. “These announcements will create and retain thousands of jobs and bring General Motors back to full employment of our hourly workforce."

    The first of the new investments -- $131 million and about 250 additional jobs in Bowling Green, Ky., -- was announced last week. Plant improvements and installation of new equipment to make the next generation Chevrolet Corvette will begin soon while the current-generation Corvette is assembled for at least the next two model years.

    Over the next few months, GM will make specific facility investment announcements dependent on successful completion of state and local incentives in some communities. According to the nonprofit Center for Automotive Research, the ripple effect of the planned investments would add almost $2.9 billion to the U.S. Gross Domestic Product and create or retain more than 28,000 jobs.

    “If the market continues to recover, we are confident that GM will hire new workers to meet the strong demand for the products our UAW members build,” Ashton said. “I am proud of how our membership has worked hard to ensure the company's success."

    Akerson said working in partnership with the UAW is essential to GM’s success.

    The only reason to resopond in the fashion you did was to argue. So, we will have to wait and see if this transpires won't we?
    No, it was to provide some balance to your blind negativity regarding the U.S. auto industry.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    No, I really am not trying to be negative. As I stated twice for you now, I would like to see this happen. I guess I'll believe it when I see it. Especially when I see the 'ol "saved, or created" meme being used.

    It's real simple, you made the case that GM moving jobs to Mexico was within their pervue to do because the union employees don't own the jobs. Just as it is their pervue to go robotic, or move to China.

    So then by that standard of business, why is the government trying to tell Boeing that they can't locate a line in SC?

    If you are going to go off on tangents, at least provide a source.

    Are you really trying to tell me that you don't know about the NLRB blocking Boeing? Where have you been?
