Toyota Republicans

This is Leo Gerard's term for the 31 Republican Senators who recently and stridently put the material interests of foreign capital before the interests of the country, its citizens and its labor unions. Gerard also documents the corporate welfare some of the relevant southern states gave to foreign automakers to entice them to locate plants in their states, plants which these Senators would protect by destroying a significant fraction of America's productive capacity. Gerard then points to the support most of these Senators gave to the fraudulent Bush-Paulson Wall Street bailout. They were not at all bothered to fund grifters when the confidence men and women belong to the politically correct class. One might judge these politicians hypocrites if it were not for the enduring Republican commitment to sell the country to whoever has the largest wallet.
