Let's look at the future of these newly confiscated businesses that government will soon control by using the business model or, as they like to call it, the “service” (just to show they have a sense of humor) model of the US Postal Service.
Be assured, pro-union Obama will do nothing to cost the Postal Workers Union anything. Democrats are more afraid of asking a union to make sacrifices than they are of a registered letter.
In a year when Fed Ex and UPS made billions and paid taxes, the United States Postal “Service” lost $2.4 billion. What makes the loss more interesting is that most of that money was lost in the mail.
Since there is little demand for their “service,” the USPS has now raised the price of a stamp to forty-four cents in response. Our government will apply the same logic to Chrysler and GM upon gaining control of them. If the 2012 Cobalt does not sell at $13,000, the government will simply raise the price to $92,000 and eliminate two of the cup holders.

Where is OUR Daniel Hannan? Why can't we hear
someone in Congress stand up and FIGHT for the dignity and sovereignty of the individual citizen? Why can't we hear a clear, unapologetic condemnation of a government out of control.
