Why not just have the Department of Health and Human Services build cars?

Calculated Risk links to this Wall Street Journal article about how the Obama administraton is trying to help GM and Chrysler avoid bankruptcy.

Avoiding bankruptcy means less court review of the company (so less chance of criminal investigations), as well as not having to break the UAW (a major union that supports the Democratic Party).

If we really wanted to have make-work for UAW members, it would be more in keeping with our system of government to simply have the HHS build cars and suvs.
