There goes Carl Levin in his new Chevy Volt, he’s driving it to Washington. I am a huge Carl Levin fan, his devotion to the auto industry and Michigan is remarkable.
Levin’s commitment to get manufacturing jobs back is evident in the work he’s doing, like exposing large corporations that pay virtually zero Federal Tax.
The biggest US corporation, GE – contributes no Federal tax.
On a recent bill, Carl says:
Among the most successful job-creation efforts we have undertaken since the financial crisis devastated our economy is our attempt to help American manufacturers create the batteries and other components that will power the next generation of electric-powered vehicles. In my state of Michigan and in other places around the country, the grant program we enacted as part of the Recovery Act has sparked a boom of manufacturing job creation. Given a choice between watching our global competitors create those jobs and creating them in the United States, we have chosen the wiser course.
While Carl Levin fights to protect the automotive industry, he also reveals the banks and investment firms that make billions off of the US economy by betting against it.
