Why don't we take the $25 billion, $50 billion, $100 billion, or whatever it is that automakers are begging congress for, and instead of helping them keep their dying business models alive, invest the money in building a kick-ass US rail system like Europe and China have? This would be better for US workers because it would create new sustainable jobs to replace their inefficient union jobs that still may vanish even after a bailout.
This is so true, Bill. I just returned from UK where the rail system is integral to their economy. It is used by nearly every citizen.
