Congressional Overdrive? 48% Disapprove of Auto Rescue Plan
The U.S. House of Representatives may have approved a $14 billion plan to rescue the American auto industry, but nearly half of Americans say they disapprove of the government’s intervention. With action on the legislation expected in the U.S. Senate as early as today, 48% of U.S. residents nationwide disapprove of Congress providing federal loans to the automakers while 41% approve of the federal assistance. Looking at registered voters in the United States, the numbers are similar.
