This is the problem with getting government involved with business

May 7th, 2009

Speaking from the Senate floor Thursday morning on the planned shutdown of the Kenosha Chrysler engine plant, sildenafil buy cialis Wisconsin Democrat Russ Feingold called on Chrysler and the Obama administration to “reconsider this terrible decision.”

From a business perspective this plant probably has to be shut down. But good business decisions aren’t the concern of politicians. Taking care of their constituents is (or at least should be). But constituents can’t be the first concern when running a company.

This is why we can’t shut down unneeded military bases. There is always some politician ready to fight to the death to keep it.

Just another good reason to keep business and government separated.

    Any bets on how long Harley will stick around?

    The extra $22MM in retroactive taxes they paid in the first quarter got noticed. They are laying off production workers up to 12 years seniority and outsourcing more and more.

    Businesses paying their “fair share” means lots and lots of unemployed… And don’t expect anything from Doyle – he only cares if you give him money – lots and lots and lots of money.
