Manzullo Front and Center in Car Bailout Hearing

Fresh from voting against the $700 billion bailout falsely advertised by U.S. Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson to be used to buy bad mortgages, 16th district Congressman Don Manzullo will be one of the questioners at the nationally televised automobile bailout hearings today.

Manzullo’s district is just south of Janesville, Wisconsin, where GM has announced the closing of its plant at the end of the month.

The district includes Belvidere, where the Chrysler plant is located.

Manzullo will be the fifth Republican to speak.

Below are the details from his press release:
