Sen. Richard Shelby (R-AL) opposes a loan for the Big Three auto makers in Detroit. Shelby appeared on Fox News Sunday this morning where he denied that he had an agenda to help foreign auto makers operating in his home state.
“I don’t have an agenda, but i’ll tell you this. in the South — South Carolina, Alabama, Kentucky, Georgia, Tennessee, Mississippi, Texas — we have about 124,000 people employed in the automobile industry. They are competing. General Motors, Ford and Chrysler can compete, but not under the model that they have.”
