Merry Christmas from Sen. Bob Corker

After Senate Republicans killed the auto industry bailout, GM was forced to immediately announce the shutdown of 20 manufacturing plants for the month of January, temporarily laying off all those workers in time for Christmas.

No word yet how that will affect Spring Hill workers here in Tennessee. But I have a pretty good guess how it will affect the economy.

A quick reminder to the GOP: jobs = good, layoffs = bad.

Update: Fortunately, those temporarily laid-off workers will receive a partial salary in January. Unless Sen. Corker gets his way. Under Corker’s plan for the auto industry, they would get nothing. The federal government would step in and kill their partial salaries during temporary plant closures. Is that want you want your Senator fighting for?
