I mean, look at how many times airlines go BK, but they are still there. Look at how many casinos go BK, but they are still there in business. Not really a big deal if the big 3 go BK except to maybe the employees. Yeah it sucks if your retirement income disappears, but hey... we are now paying because you couldnt pay for your inflated house you bought in 2006...now we gotta pay because you couldnt save your own money with your fat inflated salary for the last 30 years? I'm sorry, but if you worked for a company for 20-30 years at higher than average wages, and the only way you could survive into retirement is with 90% of your wages still coming in, YOU messed up. We shouldnt have to pay for that. Now I am all for unions and high wages. I'm not so much for paying employees 90% wages when a factory is dark. Now I am all for helping the poor and less fortunate. I'm not for helping the upper-middle class who are just being plain greedy. If you need some food, I will give it to you. If you need some clothes, i will give it to you. If you need 1000 bucks because your retired ass needs to make his boat payment this month...F*** you, asshole! Let them go Bankrupt. Ford & GM will still be there afterwards, just run buy a bunch of different people with no debt and new employees(probably the same employees actually) who will probably get to keep their same salaries, but gotta manage their own money now.
