GM's new board of director's--the U.S. Congress

So, this is how the new government-owned General Motors looks. The U.S. Congress is getting ready to pass a law requiring that GM and Chrysler to reopen the dealerships it closed last month.

The Detroit Free Press, in a story today, outlines how the U.S. House has enough sponsors for the bill to pass it when it comes up for a full vote. Three Michigan Republicans have signed on as cosponsors, U.S. Reps. Thad McCotter, Vern Ehlers and Pete Hoekstra.

Hold up your hand if you think the U.S. Congress can do a better job of managing the auto company than private enterprise.
