There’s some controversy about GM reactivating its PAC.
Since the government still owns 60 percent of GM, angry challengers to four members — Skelton; Rep. John Dingell (D-Mich.), a longtime champion of the auto industry; Rep. John Barrow (D-Ga.), a conservative Blue Dog; and Rep. Dave Reichert (R-Wash.) — are demanding that they return the money to the auto giant’s PAC.
Robert Reich addresses the topic here.
Hmmm? Last time I looked, you and I and every other U.S. taxpayer owned a majority of GM. That means some of the money we’re earning as GM owners is being used to influence how we vote in the upcoming mid-term election.
