It's not just cheap Walmart stuff and GM cars. A local golf course loaned me a Taylormade RocketBallz driver, on the label "Head Made in China, Shaft Made in China, Assembled in China". Cost $300 US.

Toyotas are built in Georgetown, Kentucky.

good lord, GM is making money hand over fist over there. Profits come back here. Why would the TARP money go away when they are making money?

Yes, and the profits from those vehicles goes over seas.
GM, Ford, and Chrysler have many more people working for them per vehicle sold here in the US than the transplant companys.

Can't believe you folks are taking the video for face value.

7 of 10. Is that cars sold in China, cars sold in the US. You don't know.
The whole thing in info but you don't know the context.
It is presented in a way to make you believe what is not correct. It was made by one person, Vince Wade. Very opinionated against China.

With stock that is now worth about $35 BILLION less than we paid for it plus all of the pension benefits assumed by the US citizens. When you buy a Nissan made in TN, the vast bulk of the money you pay goes to the workers at the plant and the workers of the other local folks who are employed by the money they spend. A dollar recycles about 5 times. When VW recently opened a new plant in TN, they had 40,000 people apply for the 6,000 new jobs. The other transplants have very satisfied workers and huge waiting lists for employment. The transplants now represent nearly 50 % (and growing) of the US auto workers.

The oil companies are like the oil cartels "control the supply you control the price" they will pump when the profit is high enough. Not the governments doing!

Of course this isn't the case. Energy companies large and small are drilling like crazy on private land in places like ND and TX for oil and places like OH and PA for natural gas. The drilling and pumping on public lands onshore and offshore is withering due to long delays in permitting. Blaming the oil companies is an old tired, excuse that just hides the real solutions. The government hates fossil fuels and wants us to use wind and solar (now up to 2% of our needs and very expense) and drive tiny little tin cans that get 54 mpg.

Context??? This is not some reporter, this is the CEO of GM speaking. since they sell far more cars here than they do anywhere else then them moving every thing to china is not good for the people of the US.
