This argument about Health care burden just doesn't make any sense to me. When I lived in Germany I had to pay high taxes for government health care...guess where I got the money for this?...yes it was in my salary that came from Zeppelin GmbH.

Therefore, in a round about way, the Health care System in these other nations is ultimately funded through the products they produce and sell...where else did you think the money came from?

The US Automakers argument is baseless and obviously an attempt to help themselves to even more top exec profits and then dump the health care bill on you and me through government taxes...you'll also need a healthy boost in your salary to afford this...where will that come from?...you guessed it my friend.
