and cost too much — InstaPundit’s readers weigh in. A taste:

Generations of GM management collected mammoth salaries and bonuses essentially by selling out the future of the company; specifically, by acceeding to successively, incrementally worse labor contracts.

Sound a lot like what happened at Big Steel ..

One more:

It was the [GM Financial Staff] that gave us cars like the Chevrolet Vega, produced at the notorious Lordstown, Ohio plant at a rate of 100 cars an hour. The build quality on that car was so bad that it is joked that the Vega was the only car ever built that was guaranteed to rust out while still on the showroom floor.
