What is GM doing buying another company at the moment? According to this article, they are still 61 percent owned by the taxpayer. How is any of this constitutional. It just goes to prove that things like government bailouts are indeed slippery sloaps. This is not to be fatalistic. They could be done as intended with the intended affects.
