Do you remember when Congress dressed down the auto execs for flying to D.C. on their private jets? Boy, they sure let them have it, didn’t they?

Hopefully, a price tag of just under $200 million of your tax dollars is okay with you. Tell you what, let me talk to my manager. Maybe we can throw in the under-body rust-proofing for free.
