It's pretty rare that John Dingell and John Conyers agree with Joe Knollenberg on much of anything. But the two Democrats, the Republican and all twelve other members of the Michigan delegation in the US House of Representatives got together to pen a letter to Health and Human Services Secretary Michael Leavitt about the recent departmental newsletter that urged employees to purchase more fuel efficient cars.
While a letter like that in and of itself seems reasonable, the House members got up in arms because the list of twelve recommended cars did not include a single one from any of the US-based carmakers. No matter which side of the aisle politicians are on you can usually count on them to try and save jobs in their own district, not least their own.
