President Barack Obama visited Detroit Diesel Corp.

Obama spoke to a crowd consisting of mostly United Auto Worker members and Detroit managers.

    Its great to see Daimler investing the money but living on the other side of the road from them, I will never get a chance at one of those jobs. Overall it’s funny he is speaking about taxing people who make $200k and more while the people standing around applauding him forget that their jobs are not assembling $15,000 cars but rather $15,000 engines which go into $150,000 trucks that are bought by a large number of people who make $200k or more.
