Rep. Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee:
I will say this. For workers in the auto industry, across the board, whether it is GM, whether it’s Nissan, whether it’s American Motors, individuals are very concerned about the impact of regulation that the EPA and OSHA and other federal agencies are heaping on our manufacturers.
Marsha still remembers the American Motors Corporation.
Losing your virginity in the back seat of one of their rolling rust buckets would rate a memorable experience. Seeing as how the Gremlin wasn’t popular until the mid-1970s, that striped beauty with the stainless hubs evolved a bit late to host Marsha’s heavy-petting-plus stage. A betting man would go with the regal Ambassador, which was easier on the knees.
I think that it is a testament to American ungenuity (?) that people keep moving forward to try to manufacture in this country. And EPA and government regulators are making it more and more difficult every single day. And this is what we hear from so many of our manufacturers large and small.
Speaking of American ungenuity, side-by-side with TV spots for the Gremlin you used to see ads for the diet supplement Ayds.
The little candies knocked out your hunger. I wonder where they went.
