The current bailout frenzy that has infected our formerly capitalistic society is the desire to now subsidize the mismanagement of the US Auto Industry. Fortunately, our lame duck Congress has now developed a spine, or at least a chicken bone, and the Republicans are looking to oppose any measures for the short term. Personally, I say no money til they re negotiate the one sided labor agreements that the manufacturers have operated under from the UAW.
