Congratulations to horrible team this announcement a great indication of what we think the Chevy -- can do for our customers.
Having -- car -- gets triple digit fuel economy.
We believe can and will be a game changer for us.
They shipping all of this game changer say you hot and what not so much joining me now is congressman Mike Kelly who also happens to own a Chevy dealership says the car is a quote guidance -- anyone who buys one is.
Bullish thanks for joining us congressman so the Chevy Volt go answer but first want to do this but this mr.
We did a little research on this -- turns out we've sold a GM bucket while I say we I mean we'd taxpayer because we.
We own so much of shabby 723.
-- last month the month of September 3895.
Cars so far.
In nine months of 2011 what do you think of that as it is it -- success.
Well I I mean.
It depends if you wanna re define success this administration is not a way of doing that but it for me the guy in the real world who -- to -- that -- from General Motors first before get a my life.
I have to buy and I have to ensure to have the secure I have to maintain -- no that's not an investor might wanna make what you know what what works for us retail business.
Is product turn how many times can you turn on the shelf mean that's the way it works in the real world.
Just -- say I and I have this over here you will take a look to know actually came in here with something I could afford and something to make sense my family.
So when you look at that we know it's not a success at all may be a success in the back the government was able to twist GM's arm to build that -- GM.
Never was Chevrolet was always about mass production and cars people want it.
Not the best product hit the market that's the biggest market and you'll -- involved.
Yeah we heard for it's a president is there was going to be gain changer said he's that is going to be game changer than He almost said it like the I have to say that you're the numbers.
We gave General Motors fifty billion dollars if I'm not mistaken they still -- -- some around twenty billion dollars.
We also give at any purchaser of the Chevy volts 7500.
Dollars to buy the Domtar.
We're basically begging to that the consuming public to -- -- -- car but they're not doing it that.
No -- that's to the expert you know Pennsylvania -- of those another 3500 dollars taxpayer dollars that that's 111000.
Dollars there is to buy a car.
The people are saying I didn't commit to look at that even though your thing 111000 dollars out there is still a lot more money than one that gets almost the same gas mileage.
Why would I do that.
Make some sense right now that the -- is in my right Chevy came out of the cruises that what it is now to fully electric car and and now this one may be the actual game changer.
-- sold I think almost 200000 since the came out I mean that's the part that people want that's -- -- that people can afford it fits their budget.
Gets great gas knowledge which -- whole family and there.
You don't have to worry about it running out of running out of electricity -- the thing that really puzzles me.
When I talk these folks are in favor of these charges it you know without electricity comes from -- is -- -- just plug and that's it.
No it actually comes from a coal generated power plant right.
So we gotta be careful how we talk about that stuff really it doesn't solve the situation -- all we are coming out with a great parts general motors' Chevrolet has always been a leader.
In making cars that the public wants that's what you win in this business congressman yesterday we do we did a story -- -- of the shows a month about.
Reported 35000 dollar.
Stimulus check that went to a truck stop in Tennessee.
So it was basically designed so that when the trucks pulled -- they can turn their diesel engines off.
And plug in now DO I'm not sure the carbon footprint it is on that but the point being they gave this money to this this truck stop.
That was already in bankruptcy I mean what goes on in the administration where they're.
They're trying all these things at the expense of the taxpayer.
Well Eric you and I know it's very easy to spend.
OP other people's money now you can waste as much money as you want a lot of money -- -- when it starts coming out of your -- you respond to a rather quickly.
People to do what I do I'm talking about people in business that have to have their own skin in the game have to supply their own capital real -- making sound business judgment.
You don't have to do that in the government you can throw money anywhere and it doesn't really matter but it's not your money.
Just raise rates get more money and I mean do this and this is such a flawed concept -- -- we're starting to realize right now the emperor has no clothes.
He's talked very well.
But when it comes due to watch walking that talk -- can't do it and it is puzzling to sit here not to think about this took three years about the jobs plan my goodness.
When you own the house when you -- the senate and you're sitting in the White House you could -- got that jobs bill passed back in January 2008 if you're really wanted to.
So why are -- waiting so long with all these things -- we for some people like General Motors were -- that congressman did not survive we gotta be a we had to wait for his eleven day Martha's Vineyard vacation to -- -- one way street one way that selfish when when he's ready he's darn ready he'll the new releases its is.
His jobs plans what -- I gets -- not.
We're gonna have to leave it there.
Congress my Kelly thanks for joining us tonight.
