Let's see, pickup, drunk, no license, no insurance. Sounds like red-neck to me. Hispanic too? Go figure.

"These people"? Who, drunks? I wasn't aware there was a fight to keep drunks in our country illegally. I'm definitely in favor of deporting all drunks. Then, let's deport everyone who drives a pickup too! Oh, they left with the first crowd? My bad!

$27k by 2020? Says who? And even if that were true, what makes you think private health insurance would be less with the same or better benefits. I'm paying $14k now for health insurance for a family of three from a private insurance company. Under "ObamaCare" at least our benefits increased. We already have to wait for specialists. If it weren't for guaranteed coverage by my employer no private insurance company would touch us. I've had a heart condition since I was three and my wife is a leukemia survivor. Meanwhile, I read where a child injured in the April tornadoes has a hospital bill of $150k+ with no way of paying for it. Under "ObamaCare" the hospital bill would be paid by insurance. Instead, the hospital will just raise their rates to cover the loss and my insurance rates go up to cover the increased hospital rates. This is a good plan? Not for us. We can barely afford the insurance rates now. "ObamaCare" can't come too soon for us.

Ok, here we go. After decades of incentives that have brought thousands upon thousands of jobs to Tennessee, a model so successful that other states have copied it, Haslam wants to start messing with it. I guess that's politics. Apparently Haslam's financial supporters and his political buddies are not happy that the real winners of this plan have been the families of the people who have the jobs instead of them.

This is the type of crap that brought unions into power before, and will bring them back again. At least under "Obamacare" she can still get health insurance after her COBRA benefits run out, at least until the insurance companies can get their politicians to repeal it (and COBRA too, if we let them get away with it).

One would not have to have a great deal of business expertise to see that Mr. Winterkorn doesn't need advice from anyone, especially Mr. Corker, about building cars or labor relations. VW's silence says everything.

Mr. Corker is first a politician. I'm sure he saw some personal political benefit to publicly providing unsolicited advice to VW's management. I'm just afraid that VW might find it somewhat irritating.

I read this article twice and I still don't read who asked Mr. Corker for his input. Who was it?

I'm sure Volkswagen doesn't need Bob Corker's advice on how to run their business. I think he could learn a few things from them on when to speak out and when to keep quiet.

Mr. Corker says he was confronted by Union and Company negotiators in his role as a "lead Republican negotiator with Democrats on the proposed auto-industry bailouts for GM and Chrysler in 2008". So he learned that the UAW has some tough negotiators. I'm sure GM and Chrysler sent negotiators who were equally as tough. Did he think that either were going to send their second string? Welcome to the real world of big business and big unions. Apparently, based on this article, that's all he learned. I got the impression that Volkswagen believes it can handle the auto business and the UAW just fine on its own and doesn't need "advice" from Mr. Corker to muck things up for them. They are business pros and know "when to hold'em and when to fold'em", thank you very much.
