That's not the only bad news on the happenings. Congress just voted to not sponser any sporting events, IE NASCAR racing/ ARMY car and probably Shoemaker TF car, it hasn't been said in the racing circles, but it did pass Congress.

Zip.

It's not from pressure from the government as far as I can find. Chrysler Group LLC paid every dime back plus interest. $7.6 BILLION to the US government and Canadian government.
Current owners are Fiat 61.8 % and the UAW 38.2 %
Note; the UAW is HEAVILY funding Obama's activities for reelection

The Union came to our factory about 2 years ago & tried to "convert" our employees here... the union got "13%" of the vote... WE SENT THEM BACK HOME... told them to pack up & don't let the door hit them on the way out!!!
