The issue has nothing to do with 'morality'. It has to do with the thousands of middle class workers that would have been out of work. This country runs on the middle class. Without their spending, the entire economy shuts down. The middle class has slowed down consumption and our economy is struggling. Can you imagine how much worse it would have been with a couple hundred thousand more unemployed?
Now, if you want to talk about penalties for the executives that caused the crisis..... That is for a different thread, but I would be very supportive of that!
As a dreamer of dreams and a travellin' man, I have chalked up many a mile.
Read dozens of books about heroes and crooks and I've learned much from both of their styles!
Auto industry wouldn't need bailouts if there were tariffs in place.
2 billion whole dollars in like 5 years. WOW, amazing. The US government would be making that type of "profit" every day if there were tariffs in place.

I wonder how many people are going to celebrate at this news when they hoped it would fail...under Bush or Obama.

No actually Tariffs is the only solution. Prepare for doomsday.Placing tariffs that would make it so they didnt have to compete would simply make the collapse even steeper when it occurred, not to mention they wouldnt have improved quality and value as quickly without global competition.
They overpromised their pay structure, from benefits to retirement. They also overstructured their assembly lines and placed too many barriers to light retooling that could make changes without large remodels. At NO point did I make the false bull**** arguments you are putting forth as my words. So you need to speak for yourself and not strawman the **** out of my posts.
