GOPers Who Would've Let Auto Industry Collapse Head To Michigan

The DNC has just released this video, ahead of the Mackinac Republican Leadership Conference in Michigan. It’s important that folks in Michigan and beyond remember just how out of touch GOP leaders have been with middle class Americans, especially those who work in and rely on the auto industry

This weekend Bobby Jindal, Scott Walker, Karl Rove and Rand Paul will attend the Mackinac Republican Leadership Conference. As they head to Michigan it’s important to remember what they thought of President Obama's decision to help Michigan when it was in trouble. Just 4 years ago, America’s auto industry was on the verge of collapse, but President Obama refused to let them go bust despite staunch opposition from many of the same Republicans who will descend on Michigan for the Michigan Republican Party’s annual retreat this weekend. While they are there hoping no one will remember how they turned their backs on the American people, President Obama will be in Claycomo, Missouri, visiting a Ford plant to highlight the auto recovery and how it has helped our broader economic recovery. Today, the American auto industry is once again thriving—thanks to President Obama's leadership, and certainly no thanks to these extreme Republican leaders.
