What does Mr. Scrooge think about the Big 3 auto bailout?
Meaning, the Republican Scrooges in the Senate who killed the rescue of the auto industry last week, at a time when the recession is expected to last for years...
Lets take a trip with the Ghost of Christmas Present, shall we?
Mr. Scrooge: Bah, humbug! Ill tell you what I think of these short-sighted, fat-cat dinosaurs from Detroit, dragging 400,000 GM retirees in their wake, like the chains of Jacob Marley... (Rattle, rattle) You UAW workers never voted for me in the first place, and its the banks I care about! The banks, the banks! Wheres my change purse? Ah, here, my dears -- a $700 billion contribution to you good bankers. Spend it as you will! No strings attached -- its Christmas, after all! Bless you, my boys.
But for you miserable automakers and your blue collar ilk, only a lump of coal, and not a penny in my purse for you!
