That Janesville GM Plant? Yeah, it closed. In May 2009.
Sorry fact checkers, GM has to burst your bubble. The Janesville WI plant that Paul Ryan referenced in his RNC speech on Wednesday night was placed on standby capacity (read: closed) in May, 2009. Oh wait, that’s after January, isn’t it?
Read down, it’s in the third to the last paragraph, there in black and white.
As Empire of Jeff says in the AOS comments, “Calendars, how do they work?”
Update: from a local paper in Wisconsin. There were people working IN the plant until April 23rd, 2009, which is the day the plant closed.
Fact Checkers, how do they work?
Update 2: This plant could have been reopened, but lost out to a “greener” plant. Current policies of this administration has nothing to do with it?
