What needs to be done to prevent another financial melt down?

Should the government take over the banks and the Big Three American auto makers? Is not this worse than welfare when three CEO's fly into Washington DC on three separate private jets and ask for $25,000,000,000.00 TWENTYFIVE BILLION DOLLARS? This is like black mail, is it not? If they fail, thousands and thousands more will lose their jobs, businesses, and homes, yet there is no guarantee that they can gain the car buyer trust and out sell Toyota Nissan, Honda or Volvo after they get this money. What needs to be done?

The solution is incredibly easy. It's so simple and straight forward that no Congressman will support it since they won't be able to make a buck off it. Let one of them fail. Right now GM is the biggest loser, so let them go out of business like they so rightfully deserve. Why is having a "Big Two" such a bad thing... More
