UAW "Needs" the Bailout, Has Money for TV Ads

UAW President Ron Gettelfinger said his union will be running pro-bailout television ads in several states

The United Auto Workers are among the biggest cheerleaders for the auto bailout. Their members say they must have the tax dollars in order to keep their jobs.

So how is it that the UAW has enough money to run TV ads for the bailout? UAW President Ron Gettlefinger said his union was going to start running advertisements in Maine, Kentucky, Indiana and Minnesota to "put a face" on the bailout and encourage Congress to pass it.

(Cue to conservative interest groups...maybe someone should make an ad to "put a face" on the taxpayer.)

Everytime anyone sees one of these ads they should see dollar signs on those union worker faces. They're using their limited dollars to try to get yours through TV ad buys.
