So much money is wasted on these greedy b****rds, and their private jet planes. Instead of actually contributing money to the company they indulge themselves in luxuries few could even imagine. Just imagine how many years earlier the Volt could have come out if the proper amount money was actually contributed to the project rather than all these luxuries. IMO I don't think they deserve a bailout, and even though it would cost jobs, it would probably force them to rethink their priorities. Instead they should force them to give back all the money that they spend on private planes. This just kinda makes me angry that the future of the Big 3 lies in the hands of executives that can't even imagine seeing themselves on a commercial aircraft with other people, and would rather waste it to avoid the "inconvience" of it. Sorry if I talk to much, but that's what I think.

Whats worse, is that these exec's received 8 figure "BONUSES" despite the fact that their companies are failing! Thats double digit million dollar bonuses. Why should they get millions of dollars for driving a company into bankruptcy???

Let Toyota buy them out.. There are plenty of other auto companies that are doing just fine

I'm not for any bailouts. Only problem is, the big cats still get paid. Oh, maybe they get laid off but only with a HUGE severance BOUNS (is there a better way to get fired?). It's the millions of laborers and communities build around those industries that hurt. It's a messed up work force.
