Health Insurance costs are killing the car companies.

Share
 

 Sometime today, General Motors (GM) is expected to declare bankruptcy, joining fellow U.S. automaker Chrysler, who should announce its emergence from the bankruptcy declared barely one month ago as it is bought out by Italian automaker Fiat.
