American Taxpayer's Loss on GM Stock Investment $14,601,905,416.80

Personally I had no idea how much we the people had lost in this "great investment" made for us by Obama.

If you had been presented with the choice to invest, or not to invest, in GM, or any other company whose officers were not managing it profitably, would you have chosen to do so?

If the answer is, "No," then the power which was exercised by others to force you to "invest" violates the very premise of representative, limited, self-government under a written Constitution.

Now we hear the management at Government Motors wants to divest itself from government ownership because GM has earned a negative branding image thanks to Obama. Obama’s GM has salary caps and so the new Government Motors cannot offer monetary inducements to attract the best talent. Obama said he will not give up GM because it's the crown jewel of his presidency. Translation: I have to save those UAW votes for me until after November.
