The Lying Weasels at General Motors
Have you seen GM's new ad touting the "fact" that they paid off their bailout loan "in full, with interest, five years ahead of schedule"?
It's a complete lie.
They took other bailout money and used that to "pay back" the government. Even Democratic Senator Tom Carper described it as "taking money out of one pocket to put it in the other one." GM didn't pay back anything. They're still bleeding billions of dollars. Their current business model isn't viable. They're just trying to convince you otherwise to suck you in and get you to buy one of their substandard vehicles.
If you want a real car from a real car company, scratch anything from Government Motors off your shopping list. You'll be glad you did in the long run.
