About the GM bailout - The CBO calculates it SAVED 1,600,000 MANUFACTURING jobs that would have been lost if Mittens and the GOPers had had their way. Those jobs are all at least "average" so the workers are still getting around $54,000/year and paying taxes at an effective rate of 14% or more. So, 1,600,000workers x $54,000/worker/year x 0.14 = $12.1 billion, in income tax revenue, plus what was paid in State and Local taxes EVERY YEAR SINCE THE BAILOUT!. Not a bad return on $10 Billion TOTAL over the same period.
