It appears I'm not the only one boycotting Government Motors. GM sales are down 45% YOY in September, Chrysler's 42%. Meanwhile Ford, which did not take a bailout, is only down 5%, gaining market share at its rivals' expense.
It appears the type of folks who formerly bought GM and Chrysler products don't appreciate being forced to support them, and the Prius crowd aren't interested in changing their buying habits to rescue the UAW. Who knew? While it's a shame to watch even more taxpayer dollars go down the rat hole as the auto bailouts fail, it's probably worth the cost as an object lesson to those who want to substitute rent-seeking for actually serving customers well.
