What is wrong... bad companies should fail, otherwise our children and their children are going to be screwed.
RE: "amount got" vs. "committed to" wording.
THIS is exactly why I avoid the mainstream press at all costs. This is an example of dirty, filthy, insidious bias. It would be one thing if it only appeared in paid advertisements, but examples like it appear in NEWS stories quite regularly.
This is why I've given up on my local newspapers and television news.
Airhen, our children and their children are going to be screwed to such a huge extent by the [s]stimulus[/s] inter-generational theft bill now before Congress that the presence or absence of car company bailouts will nearly be negligible by comparison.
The politicians needed to take care of their benefactors. Who cares if the big banks, the ones too big to fail, are lead by unethical sycophants who expect to be bailed out for their mistakes while telling their customers in the same position to pay up.
Same goes for GM and Chrysler. Based on market share, though, I guess they're no longer too big to fail, eh?
