    Default Fallout from the Auto Bailout: Delphi

    Pensions for 20,000 non-union workers simply evaporated. Union worker pensions survived. Another "cover-up"?

    “Despite our repeated requests for all responsive documents and communications, the Treasury Department has only proffered a limited number of documents, many of which were already publicly available,” Issa and Turner wrote in a Thursday letter to Geithner.

    Issa and Turner cited an early August report in The Daily Caller that included emails obtained and published showing that the Treasury Department and the White House drove the cutoff of 20,000 nonunion Delphi autoworker retirees’ pensions.

    “Documents recently made public under the Freedom of Information Act, however, demonstrate that the Treasury Department was ‘the driving force’ behind the decision to terminate the pensions of Delphi’s salaried employees,” they wrote, citing TheDC’s early August article. “Although the Treasury Department has maintained that [the Pension Benefit Guarantee Program] PBGC alone made the decision to terminate the pensions of Delphi’s salaried employees, these documents appear to indicate that Treasury Department officials and members of President Obama’s Auto Task Force played a large role in this decision.”

    This is the kind of crap that happens when the government gets involved in areas they shouldn't.

    Two weeks ago, the UAW was asking Timmy G to sell the government's share of Government Motors. The wanted the tax payers to take a 40 billion plus bath on the stock. I doubt the tax payer will ever get their money back.

    This entire mess could have been avoided had the government allowed the private sector do what it does best!
    I don't blame you. I blame bad policy. I blame the interventionists. I blame the neoconservatives who preach this stuff, who believe in it like a religion -- that they have to promote American goodness even if you have to bomb and kill people. In short, I don’t blame America; I blame neocons." — Ron Paul
