So much for “Buy American”

When the Big Apple awards a $1B contract to Nissan to provide the taxi cabs in NYC for the next 10 years, it makes me wonder at the hypocrisy of our politicians telling us to “Buy American”

Come on, is this something Ford or GM couldn’t have handled?

“Japan’s Nissan Motor Co Ltd. has won New York’s 10-year contract to build the next generation of taxis for the city, Mayor Michael Bloomberg said on Tuesday.

Turkish manufacturer Karsan Otomotiv and Ford Motor Co were the other two finalists in bids for the contract.”
