Well there almost was a bailout deal, but one disagreement stopped it; Whether the big three automakers should be required to make wage reductions. Currently, American automakers wages are more then the foreign makers. Republican Senators felt its necessary to cut the labor cost of the big three so they could save money. The United Auto Workers (UAW) is dead set against it. Ford said it does not need a bailout. Chrysler and General Motors said they do.

I thought bankruptcy was designed for business in financial trouble and needed to be relieved of there financial responsibility?
