The auto industry went under.
GM went bankrupt and they reorganized.
And they recovered. And Ford just worked it out.
The way Obama did the bailout, like he does most things economic was ill planned and loaded with agenda driven strings.
I think the bailout helped America overall, but it wasnt done well.
I can only speculate on a bigger stiumulus.
It seems like it would do more harm. Not enough jobs to overcome the strain on the system.
If you are losing $2 a unit you can never make it up in volume.
