How can we expect the Republican Senators to be able to pull their heads out of their asses if their staffers can't even keep up on an 11 week strike that SHUT DOWN GM plants all over the country, in Mexico and also hit Canadian autoworkers?

Idiots and asshats. Because of them, there's no money out there in the form of a LOAN for the auto industry!!
