Sharyn Bovat spoke up against a Japanese company taking over 1 billion American taxpayer dollars to build an EV "they knew would fail" and at the same time took the auto jobs building the cars Americans wanted to buy to Mexico. I complained & got beaten up.
I sent an email to TN leaders saying NISSAN not building the cars in America that they had the capacity to build & they STILL gave NISSAN a LOT of taxpayer money & I got bullied.
Ghosn sees a lack of local capacity as a major inhibitor of sales growth, and is hopeful that when Nissan’s Brazilian factory comes online in 2014, more capacity from their Mexican plant can be diverted to North America. Nissan is targeting 10 percent market share in the United States by 2017, and the timing of this achievement should be the impetus for the new plant.
Nissan North America received $1.5 billion to build an advanced battery plant in Tennessee and produce the plug-in Nissan Leaf nearby. It's still paying off the loan and won't disclose the balance owed.
Below an email i sent in 2012
The MSM is not covering the problem with the trade deficit. I was told the reason why the stock market has performed well with President Donald Trump is American Companies think Americans will have more money to spend in the future.The average American has taken a 15-20 decrease in income & "that" is the discretionary money for things like dining out & vacations. Does Congress think Americans don't want to stay at hotels and like having to bunk at strangers homes to save money. Companies like Airbnb have created a market which is the new "upper middle class poor"..... the upper middle class in American is struggling more than any demographic I'm a member and we don't get Obamacare subsidies. We don't get the benefits that were pay for via taxes. My name is Sharyn Bovat & I'm tired of Warren Buffet paying a lower percentage in taxes than I & I'm tired of ppl who don't work getting everything for FREE where I have to foot the bill. user charges, surge pricing, and so many other "fees" are killing the upper middle class. Have you seen the fees attached to a plane ticket? Have you rented a car for $24 a day and the reality is it's $46 a day? The American ppl are MAD & we have the internet & Congress MUST act NOW!!!
U.S. Census Bureau data shows that for the first 11 months in 2016, U.S. imports from Mexico stood at $270.6 billion, down almost one percent from $273.2 billion, for the same period in 2015. Even though imports are down, they still exceed exports, leaving a trade deficit to the tune of $58.79 billion.Read more: How Much Does The U.S. Import From Mexico?
