Auto Industry Executives Flew To Washington By Private Jet To Get Their Billion$ Of Corporate Welfare From The Taxpayers!!

Multi-million dollar earning executives of the auto industry flew by private jet yesterday to pick up their Corporate Welfare cheques paid for by average taxpayers!!

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Memo to U.S. companies seeking a bailout: When visiting Congress to ask for money, leave the private jets at home.

Chief executives from General Motors Corp, Ford Motor Co, and Chrysler LLC pleaded on Wednesday for $25 billion in federal assistance to help pay their suppliers, workers and other expenses at a time when car sales have plunged along with a souring economy.

But skeptical lawmakers blasted them for flying private jets to Washington and failing to make personal sacrifices in exchange for federal assistance. [...]

California Democrat Rep. Brad Sherman, asked the CEOs if they were willing to sell their jets on Wednesday and fly back to Detroit on a commercial flight. "Let the record show no hands went up," Sherman said.


-ABC News has more ....

Out of touch applies here.


I kind of like Sherman, even though he's spammed me :-)

Sherman was certainly asking the auto CEO's the right questions.

"empowered entitlement"

That's been the Bush mantra for 8 years and it's always been in coroporate America.

What would you expect those people to do, drive themselves on the interstates or take an overnight train, perhaps?

Hah! These boys don't even drive to work!
I just wonder how many flunkeys each has in his personal orbit.

Sickening, no?
