UAW Wants An Auto Industry Bailout to Save Itself

The $25 billion he wants the federal government to give the Big Three automakers will only delay the inevitable and reward the companies for failing to make the changes necessary to make their products competitive in the marketplace.

Let the companies go through a cleansing reorganization in bankruptcy. America will be better off for it.
