(The insurrection laws perpetuate what we have for a government now.)
Which is one of N reasons (where N is a large number) why I will NEVER purchase a GM product.

So taxpayers are likely to lose around $10 billion
Well that’s a relief. Only $10 billion. Lets all celebrate the wisdom of our leaders in government. /sarc

The media just got done reporting that we had all our money paid back.

At least the politically connected but legally irrelevant Unions won out.
Legally secured bond holders, not so much.

They’re doing this to raise cash. Just like any broke household.

IOW ten billion in taxpayer dollars went to fund union pensions, unions that played a big role in taking the company down in the first place.

(Islam offers choices: convert, submit, or die.)
A deal too big to succeed. At a time when the stock market was returning substantial gains, the government “investment” of taxpayer money yields a 20% loss.

Even if the government stake drops to zero, I am still boycotting GM forever. The government corruption was just an extra bonus. It was the corruption of the bankruptcy that offended me. They violated bankruptcy law, common law, and contract law, and I will never under any circumstances buy or rent a GM product for as long as I live.
