Republican Senator Bob Corker Booed in Tennessee (His Home State)
SPRING HILL, Tenn. (AP) - Autoworkers’ joy at getting vehicle production back on line at General Motors’ Spring Hill plant has done little to quell their disdain for Republican U.S. Senator Bob Corker.
Corker was a lead critic of the federal government bailout of automakers in 2009, and many Spring Hill workers felt his stance did little to keep the plant from being idled that year.

**Yes Bob Corker, the “saga continues”. The saga for some in the 99% is unemployment. For others, the saga is living pay-check to pay-check. Would you like to hear about the “saga” of not being able to afford health care? I’m just kidding…I know you don’t care. You & your Republican friends have made that clear time and time again. Yes Bob Corker, the “saga continues”. We’re the 99% and the saga will continue until changes are made.**
