Leave it to Brown to vote to allow Obama to screw these employees and then propose more taxpayer money to pay them off.

I have a better idea...let’s take the money from the pensions that were due to Obama and Biden and give them to the Delphi non-union workers. That’s called sharing the wealth...

Completely ignoring us GM bondholders who got robbed! The union should have to reimburse all of us as well as the Delphi pensioners.

Translation, Brown is now even with Josh Mandel in the polls and needs those Delphi votes. So long as the truth wasn’t public, Brown didn’t care what happened to those pensions.
Isn’t Stabby Debby up for re-election too?

My husband was a Delphi salaried retiree. The pension fund was 85% funded, more than most pensions. Short story, it should not have been terminated to begin with. It was done out of spite, period.

“due to Obama and Biden”

Make it the entirety of Congress.

I have to ask you.
Were you paying attention to GM in 2007 and 2008?

There were a lot of folks predicting doom then.
Industry website TTAC even had a series titled “GM Death Watch”.

The Car Czar solution was clearly illegal, but holding GM stock or bonds was a huge risk with no upside.

Amen...... Take it from the money they stole and redistributed to the UAW.

In the olden days, such theft was a hangin’ offense. It still should be
