    I read that GM (government motors) is on the verge of bankruptcy again. Bailouts just delay the inevitable.

    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 .
