That's why we need your help now. Simply put, we need you to join us to let Congress know that a bridge loan to help U.S. automakers also helps strengthen the U.S. economy and preserve millions of American jobs.
Despite what you may be hearing, we are not asking Congress for a bailout but rather a loan that will be repaid.
The consequences of the domestic auto industry collapsing would far exceed the $25 billion loan needed to bridge the current crisis. According to a recent study by the Center for Automotive Research:
- One in 10 American jobs depends on U.S. automakers
- Nearly 3 million jobs are at immediate risk
- U.S. personal income could be reduced by $150 billion
- The tax revenue lost over 3 years would be more than $156 billion
