Government Motors Ranked Worse Company to Deal With by Suppliers


This won’t surprise anyone familiar with the effect Big Government has on everything it touches. Under Obama, the Feds “rescued” General Motors, transforming it into Government Motors, rather than letting capitalism take its course, which might have allowed GM to get out from under its insane union contracts and once again become a viable company. Not long afterward, we read this:

General Motors Co, already locked in a public relations crisis because of a deadly ignition defect that has triggered the recall of 2.6 million vehicles, has a new perception problem on its hands.

The U.S. company is now considered the worst big automaker to deal with, according to a new survey of top suppliers to the car industry in the United States.

The annual survey, conducted by the automotive consultant group Planning Perspectives Inc, asks the industry’s biggest suppliers to rate their relationships with the six automakers that account for more than 85 percent of all light vehicle sales in the United States. …

Suppliers gave GM low marks on all kinds of key measures, including its overall trustworthiness, its communication skills, and its protection of intellectual property.

Socialism is the imposition of mediocrity. The more government intrudes in any sector, the more red tape, laziness, incompetence, inefficiency, corruption, and general crappiness will be seen. For example, try to imagine a Burger King managed by Barack Obama. It would be out of business within a few months. Yet he is deemed suitable to head the entire Leviathan. For another example, continue watching as the ObamaCare catastrophe unfolds.

If you think Government Motors is bad now, wait until the next government-induced financial crisis “forces” the government to seize the company outright and run it through the Department of Transportation.

At least we don’t have to buy Government Motors cars — yet.
