i was originally against it because as a capitalistic economy we should let the market mend itself without outside intervention. however,in light of the economic turmoil and the SIGNIFICANT domino effect that a failed GM(big 3) would have,it may ne the lesser of two evils to infuse some money;some money! actually over 35 billion. however,thats not the only/true reson i am for a bailout which i am usually against. there is no doubt that any money given to the auto industry will have HUGE strings attatched and one of those strings will more than likely be a significant condition: their cars will have to be engineered for maximum fuel efficiency. thy've been talking about this for years but i firmly believe they can make very fuel efficient card that look like normal cars and not a small shoe box. i think we will see regular cars getting 50 MLS r gallon;i mean real miles not best case scenerios which today's cars are based on. lets face it,oil is not going away .
