Should the Obama administration purchase cars from American owned car companies?

Or should they use your taxpayer dollars to buy cars from foreign owned companies like Hyandai's, Honda's and Mitsubishi's?

The government is now issuing cars from foreign owned companies. Seems like they should buy American like the unions push so hard for all the time.

Update:

Sure Mr. Wolf. I provided a source, how about you?

Update 2:

Realistic girl, you can't be serious. This is the actual government document that government agencies use to buy vehicles. What other proof do you need?

    In a free market wouldn't any organization purchase the most efficient cars at the best price?

    Be that as it may - Chrysler is a foreign company - Owned by Fiat, and it was owned by Daimler for years before that.

    All of the 'Foreign' makers you cite build cars in the USA.

    But it's fun to be all outraged about things that don't matter except to those with poor critical thinking skills.

    They should buy American made cars. Over 60% of GM's cars are made outside of the US.

    Honda has three full manufacturing plants here in the US. Most of the foreign owned plants actually export US produced vehicles overseas.

  • That would be Ford, the ONLY automaker that did not accept bribe...er, ah, "bailout" money from the current failed administration.

    The ultra-rich politicians have no care for how their constituents live. The politicos think that $30,000/year is "rich" yet some of them are worth that much each DAY.

    Like the French royalty of the 18th century, the rich politicians desire only their own comfort.

    "What? The people have no bread to eat? then let them eat cake!"

    The politicians have come to believe that they are our masters rather than our servants.

    They are out of control.

    It's time to vote ALL of them out of office.

    We need to have a 'REMOVE INCUMBENT' option on the ballot.

    Did I ever tell you the story about how I saw a Dodge Ram 2500 driving down the highway one day? It had a "UAW" and a "out of a job yet? keep buying foreign" bumper sticker on it.

    Perhaps you might take the time to peruse your link, and note that out of over 400 vehicle purchases, 14 were from foreign manufacturers.

    There is nothing in your link that suggests the purchase of a foreign made car.

    Can a Believer "Lose" His Salvation? Or Stated More Accurately, Can He Forfeit It? "Has God indeed said...Those on the rocky soil are those who, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no firm root; they believe for a while, and in time of temptation fall away."? (Luke 8:13) the scripture clearly teaches BOTH the sovereignty of God AND the free will of men. To deny this is irrational, and must be caused by something other than reason based on scriptural precepts. The scriptural position is that a person who is saved can forfeit that salvation. The bible teaches those at highest risk of forfeiting their salvation are those who are newly saved, and those who continue on in known disobedience, after being born again. The elect are those whom God chose, whom God foresaw would both trust in His Son AND who would endure or persevere in the faith given them until the end of their physical life, or the return of Jesus. Those whose hearts are seeking the Lord with all that is in them, should have no concern about "losing" their salvation. Nor should they have any concern about forfeiting their salvation. Salvation cannot be lost, but it can be forfeited - this is the nature of covenants in the bible. The bible no where guarantee's someone that salvation once received cannot be turned away from or forfeited by the individual that possesses it. Receiving salvation involves man's will, and not works. Forfeiting salvation involves man's will, and not works. In the same way the Lord did not force His salvation on anyone, He neither forces anyone to remain in the covenant.

    They tried that but Republicans shot down that prevision.

    I bet you didn't know about Republican fighting President Obama's "Buy American" provision. It's obvious Obama hating right-wing media don't tell you people about things like that.
