• "The Taxpayer Will Make Money on GM"

      Really? We can only hope that Diane Swonk, uber-economist at Mesirow Financial, is right.

      She made that very statement yesterday First on Fox Business on "Countdown to the Closing Bell." I nudged her to clarify because we're talking about $60 billion dollars of taxpayer money. Watch the clip below especially on the day when you're getting paid back at least some of the money used to prop up GM again.

      Let's be happy at least about THIS: General Motors was a great American icon that employed a lot of people. Today, it comes to life again. Let's cheer that part of the story on and hope that mistakes aren't repeated.
