Anyone watch the hearings last night on CSPAN? Well, when I say hearings I should say it was more like 3 executives begging for billions of dollars (probably so they could pay off their private jets and summer homes). There were actually some interesting points brought up from the Senators/panel. 2 points that I thought were very interesting were one Senator asked the CEO's why they feel they should be making 5,6 or even 7 times the amount of money that the CEO's of the foreign automakers make. Not one of them had an answer. Also brought up was why would it be fair for Ford, GM and Chrysler to be receiving billions of dollars of tax money that would basically be coming from competing auto makers such as Honda, Toyota, Suzuki etc. because those companies pay millions in taxes every year. Again, no answer. I'm glad that they got their money for 1 reason and 1 reason only. The jobs that would of been lost by American workers if the bailout would of fell through. Otherwise, I wish they would of said we can't give you anything. Build a better product and make the changes necessary to run a profitable business and things will work itself out. There is no way that any CEO of any company should be making upwards of 17 million a year. No F'in way. This didn't just happen over night. They knew this was coming for years but yet at the last minute they ask for 34 billion dollars like it's chump change. They should of told the CEOs to tap into the millions of dollars in their bank accounts and bail themselves out.
