    i am for bailouts if it includes better control of how the money is spent. there are too many people working in the auto industry to let it fail. I find it odd that the Senate didn't bat a eyelash to bail out wall street but is draging their feet to help main street

    I am for the bail out LOAN, we can not afford a great depression again. American jobs must be brought back into the USA. I have contacted my Congressmen and many others in other states too! I have plastered their offices with my letters! Fax Mail Email any way I can get it there it is there.

    I am against the bailouts. I was against the original assistance for "homeowners" who couldn't pay the mortgages they signed up for. That time, I did write mycongressman and senators. I got a nice form letter back, letting me know where to attend a meeting to possibly get assistance! Fortunately, that particular bozo got voted out of office.

    We need these bailouts for America's economy to survive. The Government is making strict guidelines these auto execs have to follow...no more private jets.

    I work for a Ford dealership so if we don't get bailed out I will probably lose my job!! But I do think it is unfair that we have to bail them out!

    Russia is bailing out our companies in their country to protect industry. Our "bailout" would be paid back in no time just from the taxes those companies currently pay... we'll lose money if we don't save them... All companies are having a hard time... for the first time ever Toyota didn't post a profit..

    I am for the most part for the bailouts, especially if it'll keep thousands of people from losing their jobs. Theirs enough people losing their jobs I don't want to see anymore people losing jobs, and there are a LOT of people employed around the US for the auto industries (not just MAKING cars, but parts, and so many other little things you wouldn't even think about get affected by things like this).

    SO yes...in the sake of Americans keeping their jobs...I'm for it.
