I am absolutely against any bailout that does not place sanctions on the CEO's of the corporations. The only thing I despise about all this is that many of the people who made the decisions that doomed the big three have long since sold most of their stocks and left the next generation to die in the aftermath of what they did.

When SUV's were becoming ever so popular, they were a very big success in the short term, but devastating for the long-term prosperity of the corporations. The CEO's knew that, but acted to make huge profits, and then sell their stocks before the long term consequences affected them.

We should be going after those people more than the ones who inherited the doomed corporations. However, they must not just be given a slap on the wrist if they are bailed out. They must forfeit their control if they are to be rescued.
