    I think that we should. We have lost enough jobs this year. I know that everyone is hurting with money, but as Americans I think that we need to stand up for all of our citizens. I think that there needs to be some definite guidelines. No trips to expenisive resorts, etc. But, as a country we cannot afford to put even more people out of work!

    Yes, it will save jobs, but for how long? And when will they need the next handout? besides the fact they have already spent the money on stuff that had NOTHING to do with the business itself and people are still loosing jobs even after the bailout! I say, give the bailout money to the people and let them put it back into the economy. NO BAILOUTS!

    The automotive industry is far bigger than just the big 3.  If they go under there are thousands of business's that will go under as well.  Also the automotive industry is one of the pillars of the US economy, if they go under then the economy is going to get a LOT worse!

    No we shouldnt. They mismanaged their businesses and should file a ch 11 like any other company that has these problems.

    I live in Michigan, I know a lot of people who will lose jobs if they don't, many do tool & die for the big 3. I would hate to see how many people would lose jobs if they go under.

    yes, we should. the loss of jobs in and supporting the auto industry would be devastating. but the same people shouldn't be left in charge, and there should be strict oversight, unlike the banking bailout.
    we manufacture too damn little in this country already, and can't afford to lose any more. it creates a weakness that we don't make anything ourselves anymore.

    Where does it end? It reminds me of the book If You Give a Mouse a Cookie. "If you bail out the banks, chances are the auto industries are going to want some money. Watching the auto industries get money reminds you that your state is in debt too, sooooo.." And on and on and on and on.

    Yes. Too many people will lose if those 3 are noi more. Where on earth will people get parts for their cars from and at what cost? So many people will lose jobs. It will just hinder things even more. We don't need that.

    they gave it to the big wealth management banks no questions asked almost and now they are readdy to turn their back on an industry that employs 1 out of every 10 americans that shit is crazy to me cause last time I checked we wanted to get the economey going not kill it for sure do I think they could have avoided this by making and developing cars that get better mailage yes do I think the government should only give them the money with HEFTY strings attacked such as the goernment being able to tell them what to do for a good long while yes I do but at the end of the day it is about the people 1 out of 10 would be job less there is 305,836,968(According to the U.S. Bureau of the Census, the resident population of the United States, projected to 12/08/08 at 17:51 GMT (EST+5)  in america that would be a lot of people out of work
