And then he makes matters worse by making it look like the Department of Transportation was just picking on poor little Toyota in order to increase the market share of GM, of which US taxpayers now own a large chunk.
"That's why I hope Congress will resist the temptation to attack Toyota simply to advance the interests of its American competitors." -- Haley BarbourLet's remind Haley that not everyone has his sick, paranoid mind. Other members of Congress, of both parties, were furious with Toyota. They were certainly not thinking of GM stock - they were concerned for the dead and injured Americans that were Toyota's victims - some of whom testified today.
And let's also remind Haley that the Secretary of Transportation, Ray LaHood, who was almost apoplectic over Toyota's behavior, is a Republican.
Haley, Congress is trying to increase accountability and resources to monitor and regulate all car companies - not just Toyota - in order to protect American and to prevent this from occuring again . You, on the other hand, were only concerned with money.
You shamed us, Haley. Mississippians are not like that.
