We use to have a tradition in the United States. Corporations and companies go out of buisness, and then another stronger one takes it's place. They are going to bail them out regardless, and there is not enough vocal citizens to prevent them from doing it.
We have to end this somehow. Here is the irony - They get taxpayer money for the bailout; however, they will not lower the price of a car to say "thank you we get it". Where is our discount on cars? What do we get in return? Do we also get a cheaper-greener car?
