Toyota Hearings: Thirty One House Democrats Grilling Toyota Got Buckets of UAW Cash

by the Left Coast Rebel

My instincts about the Toyota anticapitalist show trials are ringing true today. Many of the key players in the Toyota hearings/show trial have taken loads of cash from the United Auto Workers Union? Surprised? I'm not. Examiner:

There is a combined total of 59 Democrats serving on these two panels, which hold potentially life-and-death power over Toyota's ability to continue offering its products to American consumers. So far this year, 31 of the 59 have received re-election campaign contributions ranging from as low as $500 to as high as $10,000 from the United Auto Workers union.

Why is that significant? Because the UAW is a major stockholder of Toyota's top U.S. rival, General Motors. Also, Toyota has successfully resisted UAW attempts to organize the Japanese firm's estimated 31,000 assembly line workers employed in five plants here in America.

Democrats have been telling America for years that special interest money corrupts government. I wonder if that is not the case now in these hearings in which Toyota executives are being grilled and are being subjected to an avalanche of negative coverage in the Mainstream Media.

Now recall that Rhonda Smith, the case of the runaway Lexus from Tennesee was a key point in the Toyotal show trials. Recall that I could smell a UAW connection. While still a hunch, does it make you feel great to know that over half of these Democrats showing this Toyota show trial took cash from the UAW?
