"...in TV commercials and newspaper columns that GM has paid back its bailout "in full and ahead of schedule." [This is] fanciful to the point of deceit. GM received $50 billion in TARP funds (never mind that TARP was only supposed to cover financial institutions). About $7 billion of that came in the form of a straight-up, low-interest loan. And about $13 billion came in the form of an escrow account. So how has GM, which lost $38 billion in 2007 even as it sold 9.4 million cars, paid back its debt? It took money from the escrow account to pay back the $6.7 billion loan."Is this what "American ingenuity" has become? Slimy bullshit...
