Take the Bush debt and interest on that away , and we'd be in a much better position financially. Repubs can't see or admit that.

Obama has created an honest government , he hasn't sent any jobs to foreign countries. How many companies did Romney and Bain raid ? That was their specialty.

The U.S. Treasury Department is unwilling to sell the government's stake in General Motors Co. because a sale now would mean huge investment losses, the Wall Street Journal reported on Monday, citing people close to the matter.


Earlier this year GM floated a plan with Treasury officials to repurchase 200 million of the roughly 500 million shares the U.S. holds in the carmaker, the newspaper said, citing unidentified people familiar with the situation.

Under that plan, Treasury would sell the remaining shares through a public stock offering, the Journal said.

But the Treasury, which holds a 26.5 percent stake in the automaker, is not interested in GM's offer at the current price, and is not rushing to sell shares, the Journal said, citing people familiar with the matter.

At GM's Friday share price of $24.14, the U.S. would lose about $15 billion on the GM bailout if it sold its entire stake, the paper said.

While GM stock would need to reach $53 a share for the U.S. to break even, Treasury officials would consider selling at a price in the $30s, the Journal said.


You want the US Government to sell early and lose money? You're unamerican Dabbob.

GM wants government out... oh what will Bank of Barry do?


(MarketWatch) -- The Treasury Department is resisting General Motors' push for the government to sell off its stake in the auto maker, The Wall Street Journal reports. Following a $50 billion bailout in 2009, the U.S. taxpayers now own almost 27% of the company. But the newspaper said GM executives are now chafing at that, saying it hurts the company's reputation and its ability to attract top talent due to pay restrictions. Earlier this year, GM GM -1.20% presented a plan to repurchase 200 million of the 500 million shares the U.S. holds with the balance being sold via a public offering. But officials at the Treasury Department were not interested as selling now would lead to a multibillion dollar loss for the government, the newspaper noted.
