I am really mad. Why should we bail General Motors out? Do they really need the money?

It was just in the paper about them going to spend millions of dollars to build a new plant in India. So why do they need our money? I am sick and tired of bailing companies out.

Burden on taxpayers?? If the auto industry does not get the same relief that the financials are getting - there is no use in bailing the financials out - In very simple terms - people need to have a JOB in order to make some MONEY to pay the TAXES to bail out the financials as well - if you bail out one and not the other - WHO is going to pay the TAXES to bail out just the financial sector?? therefore it would be usless to do only one. It's not just GM - Ford & Chrysler that are in financial trouble - it's the WHOLE country - they are just caught in it the same as everyone else - this is not the time to say the Big 3 don't run their businesses efficiently - look at the stocks - they are definatley not alone - EVERYONE in North America needs help now - and it's OUR job to pull together and do that - not to lay blame - Trillions on WAR in Iraq but not a few billion to FEED your OWN ?
