Chrysler Gives Workers the Day off to Vote
Something Chrysler is not doing: shifting Jeep production and jobs to China. Something Chrysler is doing: giving workers the day off to vote. The auto manufacturer's vice president of design tweets:
Chrysler gave its entire work force the day off to Vote Today! Let's go! #America
— @RalphGilles via Twitter for iPhone A week ago, Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne sent employees an email saying that because of the "public debate" over the Jeep jobs (i.e. because of Romney's lies), "I feel obliged to unambiguously restate our position" that Chrysler is not only not moving jobs to China but expanding its American workforce. And now all those Ohio and Michigan workers have the day off to vote.
It's nice to watch a lie biting Mitt Romney in the ass in real time, isn't it?

6. Even so...
you know the automakers have just about had it with Mitt, who wanted Detroit to go bankrupt, spread lies that Jeep was moving production to China (and lie louder after Chrysler called bullshit) and plans a federal austerity program that will reduce their sales.
