Letter to the Editor
It’s interesting to listen to Republican complain about General Motors – that the government shouldn’t get involved in telling GM what to do. Huh? We are the taxpayers and we now own GM. As the owners it’s our company and we do what we want with it. We have to look out for our investment to make sure our company GM makes the right decisions. If not for us GM wouldn’t exist. Therefore we’re not taking away free enterprise’s right to sovereignty. Since we, the taxpayers, are stuck owning them then we get to shape our company in what we think is best for the public interest. Then we’ll sell it back to the private sector and when they pay for it they can do whatever they want.
