banks and the auto industry were two different problems
neither should have been bailed out
banks not being bailed out would have probably destroyed the economy for a lot of reasons... but we never should have put them in that position
on top of NO bailouts...
we need to fix the regulations the burden the auto industry AND stop forcing banks to loan to folks who can't afford it!

look all politics are local...
it's hard to stand on your beliefs when you know it's your district that will get the short term punch...
it's also why manufacturing is not a great industry to build your entire economy around... times change and it's hard to build todays new needs at a plan designed decades ago... so it's easier to build a new on somewhere else
there was a time we didn't expect politicians to be so idelogical and expected them to fight for the folks they represented
