Union Says, "We Will Sink the Ship!"

It appears that the United Auto Workers (UAW) union believes the (D)emocrats owe them big, because they will not negotiate:

...the union president, said at the weekend that “the focus has to be on the economy as a whole as opposed to a UAW contract”. [Read]

They have made it clear that there will be NO concessions coming from the union as a condition for billions in taxpayer dollars. Will it be bankruptcy to reorganize, or is the UAW now so powerful that the Democrats will pump billions of your dollars into a failed business--a model that has failed in large part due to legacy costs the union has been able to extract from management? (Again, just like politics, they are bearing the burden of weak and ineffective management over many decades...sound familiar?)

Once again taxpayers will be bailing out another irresponsible corporation. For years the automakers and oil companies were holding hands. The automakers refused to build fuel efficient cars because it would mean less $$$ to the oil companies. The gas prices sky rocketed and the auto sales plummetted, yet the government, i.e. the taxpayers, are required to save these companies from certain death.
They have been screwing us over for years and yet they are expecting us to save them. Simply astounding.
