Local Dealers Hope For Bailout

Local auto dealers say without a government-funded $25 billion dollar bailout package, their businesses could suffer.

"Sales have declined so much that the manufacturers are all just stuck with the inventory, which is costing money and they have to lay the people off, because they can't build more vehicles, because we're not selling more vehicles," explained Richard James, Springfield's Nissan Sales Manager.

I won't buy another American car if the United States government allows the American auto industry to continue down the path while handing them billions. The demands of the UAW have forced car prices higher and higher while cutting corners to save on costs. This bailout is to cover union benefits. I will buy an American Honda before I will buy a Dodge, Chevy, or Ford if Congress approves a bailout. The industry needs to reinvent itself, even if that means dissolving the outdated union.

And just how is the auto industry bailout (of the big three) going to help Nissan sales?

What ever happened to the days when journalists would ask relevant questions?
