The following institutional investors bought into Cerberus Institutional Partners IV (CIP4). That’s the $1b – $1.5b Cerberus-controlled fund established to provide part of the initial $7.2b payment to Daimler for Chrysler. Obviously, this list is far from complete. We call on our elected representatives to require Cerberus to provide a full and complete accounting of all participants in this fund before U.S. taxpayers extend Chrysler any more federal loans.

    Idaho needs to drop this hot potato. I made a funny. Anyway, I thought they were smarter out there.

    Most of the “stimulus” package just signed into law by Pres. Obama increases the federal wage roll. Considering the enormous political contributions given by public employee unions to the party now in power we can expect the political power of public employee unions to grow yet even more. Would you have any factual references to support these two contentions? Like how many fed. employees will be added due to the stimulus? And what was the public employee contribution to the Democratic party?

    It'd be much better to lay off millions of federal employees in a time of record unemployment so they want have any money left to spend into the economy. Wait, what? No, that'd be monumentally stupid.
