Read this and thought, the next time the GM asks for X billion dollars, the government could use the money to buy up Toyota stock. Toyota would then be at least partially owned by the American government with plants in the U.S. and we would have a profitable American auto industry. I don’t think this is something the government should do, but it would be better than throwing money away so GM executives can keep flying in private jets.

My plan would not win the hearts and mind of Michigan voters.
