I thought O Sambo said the economy was doing great????
I read that GM (government motors) is on the verge of bankruptcy again. Bailouts just delay the inevitable.
900 more jobs gone in my backyard. We can’t take 4 more years of this. GM now this.
Is that you Mitt, starting next week you will have plenty of time to wax philosophically.
t has nothing to do with the economy . It’s Navistar lowering production costs by moving production to Mexico . Coca Cola and Duke energy kept a SC Navistar plant open by insisting trucks produced for them be American made . Unfortunately the large OTR carriers would buy tractors from China if the price was right .
