If you are at all confused about what happened with automotive bailout this book is a MUST read. Find out truth now and purchase this book. If you are concerned about the well being of your children and grandchildren's future in America this book will shed light on what our government can and will do to get what "they" want, not what "We the people" as our constitution states.

I'm not in the car business but live in DC and saw the battle played out in our local paper and news media. Admired Tamara Darvish as she took on these clueless members of the car task force! While task force will take credit for what they did in turning the car industry around, in reality dumping the dealers did nothing for for the bottom line of the car mfr. Just go ask Ford!

What this book clearly shows, the goverment task force took hard working people who invested everything they had to build a business and just wiped them out for no good reason! Sad to think our own government would do this to the very people make our country great! The other thing she pointed out so well was the impact on local communities and charities. That really hit home when I think of what the local dealers in our area do for so many events. Every community, school, local sports and charity event in our area is supported by the local car dealers.

Thanks Tamara for bringing this to light and yes Outraged was the perfect title as that how I felt about the government task force at the end. BTW....Perfect ending with the Gift Basket! You Rock!

"Outraged: How Detroit and the Wall Street Car Czars Killed the American Dream" is a must read that should go down in the history books. This story details how the Administration and the Auto Task Force wiped out small businesses and jobs across America circumventing the Constitution.

Outraged: How Detroit and the Wall Street Car Czars Killed the American Dream Read this book to realize what proves to be a country in peril. Since when do we reward failure and punish success? Chrysler was a misfit dysfunctionally run company with their heads up their differential. The Obama Administration Car Czars took taxpayer money, bailed out the unsecured creditor unions. Kicked the secured creditors to the pavement and screwed 789 familes out of their businesses. What's worse, they gave the franchise rights and client lists of their terminated dealers to their next door competitor.Don't say it can't happen in America. We have an Administration that will seize you property and give it to someone else for free. Don't misunderstand. The Ghost of Adolf Hilter, Josef Stalin, Fidel Castro, and
Kim Jung Il live vicariously in America through Barack Obama. Tammy Darvish is a true Patriot. Her abilities to rally Congress to the defense of 189,000 family jobs put into peril by the stupidest moves any administration could ever make are remarkable. With help from Representatives Hoyer and Van Hollen they pulled off the unthinkable. It's sad that the Democratically controlled Senate changed the original draft bill or many more family businesses would have been saved from this thuggish, destructive, job killing, administration.

Buy this book. Read it. Get the living hell scared out of you, and then call your Congressman and demand oversight hearings for these perpetrators.

This book is not just for auto dealers but for all small business. Outraged gives true accounts of the wrongful terminations of car dealerships across the country and how government let it happen. The personal property and livelihoods of thousands of people were taken and in many cases given away to other dealers for free. Tammy gives detailed accounts and factual testimony proving it was all a scam by the manufacturers, many being terminated because they wouldn't kiss the manufacturer's butt. Way to go Tammy!

This book tells the truth about the horrible things that happened to the our country's free enterprise system as we knew it, as well as the dealers, employees and communities that depended on them. Anyone that would label this book as "propoganda" most likely either benefitted in some way from the bailouts, or has not taken the time to become informed. The truth is in the SIGTARP Report (the Governement's own evaluation of the Program). The SIGTARP Report is referred to many times in this book. This book is a "must buy" for those that are truly concerned about our country's future. We can't allow for something this unconstitutional to happen again. Where's the accountability?
