White House puts UAW ahead of property rights -- >> Politics

Disgusting and disheartening. Executive branch of national government does exactly the opposite of its fundamental role of protecting property rights.

Michael Barone writes, "The White House, presumably car czar Steven Rattner and deputy Ron Bloom, is seeking to transfer the property of one group of people to another group that is politically favored. In the process, it is setting aside basic property rights in favor of rewarding the United Auto Workers for the support the union has given the Democratic Party. The only possible limit on the White House’s power is the bankruptcy judge, who might not go along... In the meantime, who is going to buy bonds from unionized companies if the government is going to take their money away and give it to the union? We have just seen an episode of Gangster Government. It is likely to be part of a continuing series." >> Politics >> - White House puts UAW ahead of property rights
