Why in the world does it make sense to just give money to the Big Three? Admittedly, part of that may go to support their legacy costs but overall a cash bailout does nothing to help get them on track to where they can provide stable and gainful employment to hundreds of thousands without just digging themselves a deeper hole.
Does it not make far more sense to correct their current and future legacy problems and then do things which encourage people to buy cars now, preferably fuel efficient ones? Is that not really what they need -- customers, rather than just cash to blow through?
Someone please help me! Anyone? Anyone?
