    In the past couple of years GM has done a lot of terrible things to me, but this is the worst! Selling my future to China.

    Massive funding deficit? No worries. I'm sure it will be added to the taxpayer's tab.

    Don't worry. They'll just screw the bondholders again. Or is that us?

    I hope that America wakes up and realizes that GM is selling us all down the river. They have hurt countless dealers, bondholders, taxpayers and now this! Our government is to blame for this as well.
