Joe Lawlor at The Flint Journal reports:
"Just about every household in America would be in line for a a voucher to purchase a new car if Mayor Don Williamson has his way.With brilliant — and costly — moves like this, it's hard to figure out why Williamson is facing a recall election.
"Williamson is sending City Administrator Darryl Buchanan to Washington D.C. next week to tout his big idea to save the auto industry as part of the Mayors Automotive Coalition lobbying Congress for the Detroit Three's $34-billion loan.
"Williamson said under his idea, each household with a registered voter would receive a $5,000 voucher to purchase a new car. He hasn't calculated how much the plan would cost taxpayers."
