‘Think Ford First’ — Especially If You’re About to Lose Your Job

Think you’re gonna lose your job? Go get a Ford:

Ford Motor Co. said Tuesday it is offering a payment protection plan to help reassure consumers who may be putting off buying a new car because of worries about losing their job.
Ford said Tuesday it will cover payments of up to $700 each month for up to a year on any new Ford, Lincoln or Mercury vehicle if consumers lose their jobs. The program runs until June 1.

But, maybe you should buy a car from Government Motors instead:

GM has said it is considering a program that would help new car owners keep their cars, in the event they lose their job.

Are we heading into the “a car is a human right and therefore the government should provide it for free” territory where health care and housing resides? Maybe it’s part of the government’s grand plan to combine free housing and free cars into one big human right, since they know that most of us will living in our cars pretty soon anyway.
