The auto industry should be asking the oil industry for some bail-out cash. Those oil companies have had "windfall profits" the past few years thanks to the gas guzzling monstrosities Detroit has been churning out but no one buys now.
I don't remember the car companies bailing out Indiana when a huge amount of our factory jobs shipped off to Mexico in the late 80s and early 90s. Instead, I remember the auto plants and their affiliated factories (transmissions, engine parts, etc.) closing up and heading south while Hoosiers struggled to find a job that paid a living wage. Hell, GM has been outsourcing even its white-collar jobs for years now, while our former middle class works for Wal-Mart.
