    One Response to PODCAST: Automaker Bailout or UAW Bailout?

    1. KJinAZ says:

      The taxpayers end up paying for all of the political campaigns the UAW has supported with the money they were supposed to use for member benifits. This is called fraud, and it IS a crime. We just need someone in the justice department that actually understands the law.
