Ford also didn't have the bail out. If I went out of business Obama wouldn't help me and I understand it keeps people at work but it really burns me up that someone got a second chance to mess up their finances again. I have a hard time with that. But ford flat out hauls better.
You're right....they didn't officially get any "bail out" money, but they sure did take out a whole bunch of low interest Government loans at a very opportunistic time. They also received some timely Government help in the 80's with the transmission "recall" that didn't end up being a recall. The Big 3 have all gotten plenty of Government "bail outs" over the years.
