Ron Paul takes the mask off of the Auto Bailout: The fat cats and the unions
are looking to keep their retirement benefits and all their bonuses.
Too bad, we'll probably still have to see them go bankrupt. Hopefully sooner
rather than later.
[Update: Sure enough, GM went bankrupt soon thereafter]

Dear fellow Patriot,
Small piece of good news out of Washington last night!
After the House of Representatives rubberstamped a $15 billion bailout package for Ford, General Motors, and Chrysler in a 237-170 mostly party line vote, bailout proceedings croaked in the Senate last night.
See Ron Paul tear the bailout’s mask off during a speech on the House floor on Wednesday and expose it for what it really is:
But don’t expect The Big Three and the United Automotive Workers union to just give up.
Now they’re pressuring the White House to cut them big slices of the Treasury’s $700 billion taxpayer pizza – and don’t forget the $50 billion in grants they still want from the Department of Energy.

If you were one of the many Campaign for Liberty patriots who turned up the heat on Congress, you deserve a hearty “thank you”!
