Cleveland, OH - The American Policy Roundtable today called upon President Barack Obama to intervene and stop the termination of 789 Chrysler dealerships across the nation. The contract termination was announced last week by Chrysler operating under the protection of federal bankruptcy court.
“Chrysler is now operating with public tax dollars. Those dollars should not be spent in illegal and unethical practices, such as breaking legal contacts with dealers who have done nothing wrong,” said David Zanotti, President/CEO of the nonprofit American Policy Roundtable. “These dealers and all their employees make Chrysler money every single day. They are not liabilities, they are profit centers. Throwing these people out of work without just cause is just plain rotten. This action will also diminish the value of every Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep on the highway today and devalue Chrysler in the future. The President and Congress must intervene and stop this injustice.”
The Roundtable issued an immediate call for help to over 20,000 supporters and allies across the nation today urging them call President Obama and members of the U.S. Congress. The alert is also featured on the website: www.APRoundtable.org. The Chrysler Question will also be a feature on upcoming episodes of The Public Square®, the Roundtable’s radio broadcast heard on over 150 radio stations across the nation.
The American Policy Roundtable, founded in 1980 is an independent, non-profit education and research organization promoting the principles of the Declaration of Independence and U.S. Constitution in public policy.
