To Bail or Not to Bail

There has been lots of discussion about the Auto Industry Bailout lately.  We at Auto Body Specialties are not interested in the politics of the moment. We are not following closely the naming of the new car Czar. We are not concerned if the Senate Republicans are in disagreement with Dick Cheney. 

What we want to see is both parties, which make up our government, working with each other to safeguard our free market system, and looking for ways to help the working guys and gals in the automotive industry.

Here’s hoping for a short downturn and a quick return to prosperity.
