this is another case of political payola from a low class criminal. period.

hmm looks like a great place to snugly store a can of sardines
The GM buyout saved the retirement annuities and medical insurance benefits of UAW members, as was intended. Other Obama “investments” were calculated and intended to reward major Democrat donors. The liabilities were made part of the insurmountable fiscal debt of the American people and their government, which that is being Fundamentally Transformed into anything but their servant.
If Tesla succeeds and changes the world— then all of this will be... well you figure.
Bill Gates says about 50% of the start ups in silicon valley are just silly. And that’s with private money.

An easy claim to make when you’re in prototype. But to actually build a functional vehicle that is street legal and can be sold at that price point is another matter.

Another criminal element with taxpayer’s money. Smith Electric Vehicles should make vehicles that Americans would buy.
