Those that live in the Michigan area know exactly why it's needed. Those that don't will find out soon enough what I mean if they don't some kind of help. Yes, they need to restructure. Yes they are an archaic industry, but maybe this will truly make them reinvent themselves. If the "Big 3" fail. It will not be good for ALL of us. So I say give it to them, but there definitely needs to be some strings attached.

No. If I fuck up my business ventures, the government won't give me a hand out because I was stupid. Multi million dollar companies don't deserve special treatment.
I read in newsweek that if the bailout fails only 1 US automaker will make it, that being Ford. They have something like 6-8 times the cash reserves of GM and 12 times that of Chrysler. I foresee a merger of some sort.
No matter what happens you can say good bye to the pension packages as they currently exist.

yes, because as many mistakes as they may have made, the job losses that would be created would make the mess worse. The way the plan works to my understanding is, they have to repay the government whatever money they get to protect taxpayer interests.
I agree it doesnt seem fair, but it needs to pass.

Why in the hell do we have to BAIL anyone out?? If their greed for money and bullcrap would come to an end.. we wouldn't have this problem. I have a vehicle... it runs... I am not buying a new one. It's a Ford... I can get parts for it and FIX IT MYSLEF!! So if the other companies go belly up... too damn bad! I got Ford and if they make it... then awesome. I hate to see all those people lose their jobs and everything that may happen to the workforce.. but as far as CEO's and higher up's go... they can kiss my butt!
