Former Auto Task Force Officials Refuse to be Interviewed by SIGTARP in Delphi Pensions Investigation

The Obama Administration is refusing to discuss how, why, and by whom the decision was made to top up the pensions of Delphi hourly retirees, making them completely whole, and not extend the same treatment to Delphi salaried retirees, whose pensions were reduced up to 70%. 

The President's Auto Task Force officials Ron Bloom, Matthew Feldman, and Harry Wilson are refusing to meet or speak with the Special Inspector General for the Troubled Asset Relief Program (SIGTARP) from which funds were provided to bailout GM during the Administration-orchestrated bankruptcy.

SIGTARP believes that the Auto Task Force played a role in the pension decision and these individuals’ failure to speak to SIGTARP on this issue poses a significant obstacle to SIGTARP’s ability to complete its audit.

Today, Congressman Mike Turner (R-OH-3) requested that the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee interview these individuals concerning the role they played in the decision to take the retirement and health benefits of Delphi salaried retirees.
