We could be exporting those vehicles and make some cash. Cooperate America is just simply greedy. Instead of making a comfortable profit they want it all and have a HUGE Margin.
Ford’s July U.S. Sales Rise; GM, Honda Post Declines
Aug. 3 (Bloomberg) -- Ford Motor Co.’s July U.S. sales rose 2.3 percent, leading the way as the government’s so-called cash- for-clunkers incentive may have helped the auto industry to its strongest pace this year.
Other major automakers reported declines, including 19 percent for General Motors Co., 25 percent for Nissan Motor Co., 17 percent for Honda Motor Co. and 9.4 percent for Chrysler Group LLC.

Now if there was incentives like tax credits to keep jobs in the country maybe they would be interested in saving American jobs.

Aug. 3 (Bloomberg) -- General Motors Co. may have to cut more U.S. hourly jobs after an offer of buyouts and early retirements fell about 7,500 workers short of the reorganized automaker’s target.
The possibility of layoffs was disclosed today by Sherrie Childers Arb, a spokeswoman, in an interview after GM announced that more than 6,000 United Auto Workers members, or 11 percent of the hourly workforce, left the company on Aug. 1.
Ford Motor Co. (NYSE: F) is the only U.S. car company left standing that hasn't succumbed to government aid or taken a path through bankruptcy. But, in a way, it has found a little help from the U.S. government recently, as it posted the first monthly sales gain since 2007 on the back of the "Cash for Clunkers" trade-in program that worked so well, the initial billion dollars for the program is already exhausted.
It took about a week for consumers to plow through rebates up to $4,500 from the government and to swipe almost the entire $1 billion from the program. There was so much demand that the program was feverishly being planned to be extended with new government money. Ford alone saw a 2.4% increase over last year. $2 billion more was approved for the program by Congress, so will Ford continue to see gains with the new money? August could end up being larger than July, yes?

My bad. How about Obamaland? The United States of Obamatania? Baracktown? New Cuba? Or The North American Province of China?
-gods, I'm depressed. Is it too early to start drinking yet? For that matter, will Obama buy me a new liver with his plan? Or am I going on a list?-
Where made: United States
When it came to Cash for Clunkers, Ford benefited from its past sins. Ford says the vehicle most often traded in was its popular Explorer SUV, the very vehicle that kicked off the SUV craze in the 1990s.
No doubt many of those Explorer owners remained loyal Ford customers. That is likely one of the reasons the Focus is the most purchased car under the program, according to government data.
