Gov. Granholm's statement on failure of rescue bill
Gov. Granholm Issues Statement On Rescue Bill's Failure
Friday, December 12, 2008
By: Jennifer M. Granholm

Republican senators have just delivered a fierce slap at three million workers across America. Their no vote is an astounding blow: They have chosen to ignore the livelihood of three million Americans, three million families, and in the process have have chosen to drive the American manufacturing industry - and perhaps the American economy - into the ground. They are choosing foreign competitors over American industry and American workers. A nation without a strong manufacturing sector is a nation without a viable defense sector. This is a shameful day, a day we will not forget.

This is a shameful day, a day we will not forget.

I implore President Bush not to let the American economy slide from recession into depresion as he leaves office. Direct the Treasury Secretary or the Chairman of the Federal Reserve to use their authority to save the American auto industry, three million American jobs, and our nation's economy.

The moment could not be more urgent.

Mr. President, American workers are depending on you. Save these jobs.

1. I'm very happy with her statement
It's great that she put out a statement that reflected the anger that she and most Michigan citizens feel right now. It is, indeed, a very shameful day. The Republicans' hatred of the unions is so strong that they are willing to risk a depression and millions of jobs in order to take them down. It's sad that we now have to look to Bush to save the US auto industry (a scary thought).

2. She held a presser at around 3pm today. Look for video on local tv sites
She was terrific.
