GM to abandon taxpayers it hurt with defective products

Urgent Action Alert — Contact the White House THIS AFTERNOON to Protect Catastrophically Injured Victims of Defective GM Cars

Unless we act TODAY, the White House will allow General Motors to abandon over 300 consumers seriously hurt by defects in GM vehicles by extinguishing the company's responsibility for these victims. This is a cruel, immoral and un-American result because GM decided last Friday to take responsibility for injuries caused by vehicles in the future. But the company is washing their hands of consumers they have already hurt. PLEASE CALL OR FAX THE WHITE HOUSE TO STOP THIS TRAVESTY: PHONE: 202-456-1414. FAX: 202-456-2461.

What kind of company would abandon a catastrophically injured child, a woman paralyzed from the neck down, and hundreds of others who have been injured by defective GM cars?  How can our government leave these consumers with no protection -- especially when these are the same consumers who bailed out GM in the first place?  And who would want to buy a car from a company that treats consumers this way?
 
Time is running out.  On Tuesday, General Motors will attempt to officially leave these injured families behind in the bankruptcy process.  We must take action today to make sure that GM is responsible for the cars they have put on the road  -- as well as cars they build in the future.

The Obama Administration's "Auto Task-Force," which is lead by the Treasury Department, is directly responsible for this decision.  There are only a limited number of hours left in the bankruptcy process.  Contact them THIS AFTERNOON to make sure that they know Americans will not stand for leaving hundreds of injured families behind in the GM bankruptcy process.   Tell them we will not buy their cars until these families are protected.  And we will not stop speaking up until GM takes full responsibility for injuries caused by all GM cars.  PLEASE CALL OR FAX THE WHITE HOUSE TO STOP THIS TRAVESTY: PHONE: 202-456-1414. FAX: 202-456-2461.

Thank you,
