Political Bites - No.22 - Money-Back Guarantee

auto industry, bail-out, politicos

The US Congress is currently debating whether to bail out the automobile manufacturers. The auto company management and the unions have come to Congress and prostrated themselves in humble supplication for money. As Oliver Twist said: ”More please, sir. I’d like some more.”

Should the US Congress give them the money?

Consider this: for sixty years or more, the auto makers, the parts manufacturers, the auto dealers, and the unions have given millions, nay, billions into the coffers of the politicos. The righteous citizens of American captitalism have given the politicos money for elections and re-elections. The citizens have provided favors and help to these politicos time and again.

And the politicos have taken the money and run with it. The automobile industry has supported numerous politicos.

And now what should happen?

It’s payback time! In return for all the money spent over sixty years, all the auto industry wants is a little money back. Certainly Congress has given favors back to the companies and unions but money is money.

Think of consumers. Most consumers, when they buy something, expect some kind of money-back guarantee. If the product doesn’t do what it is advertized to do, wouldn’t the consumer want their money returned?

The auto industry bought the politicos, should the money be returned if the favors aren’t given? The politicos can easily cough up $25 billion. Heck, the sugar industry alone gets $2 billion a year in subsidies. There’s money available. The government prints the stuff every day.

In the future, all politicos should provide a money back guarantee. As the politico stands in front of citizens and makes all sorts of campaign promises, if the promises aren’t kept, shouldn’t the contributors ask and receive their money back. If the contributors don’t like what the politicos are doing, the money should be paid back cheerfully.

After all, don’t the politicos work for the citizens?
