On December 11, 2008, the Senate failed to move to consideration of legislation that would have provided a bridge loan to Chrysler, Ford, and General Motors by a vote of 52-35. I voted in favor of this motion because I believe that allowing the automakers to fail could create a snowball effect costing thousands of American jobs and putting our economy deeper into recession.
So, I understand her correctly, the point of the American government is insure that everyone has a job—it doesn’t matter what they are doing or if it’s worth the money they’re getting paid—just that everyone should have a job. Well, I think the Soviet Union had that twisted mentality right up until the point when they imploded and self-destructed. If that’s what Senator Feinstein wants to happen, then by all means, Diane, go ahead, keep passing frivolous bailouts. But should I have to be taken down with those auto companies? I don’t think so. You want to pay for it, go ahead, but keep me out of it, you fat socialist fuck!
