Please, stop comparing the bailout of banks and financial institutions with the one of the automotive industry. They are not comparable.
Imagine a body in which the financial system is the heart and the automotive industry is an irreversible gangrenous foot whose harmful effects might spread up the leg to the vital organs. Is it reasonable to save the heart? Yes. isn't it? What would you do with the foot? Would you sever it or either would you try to "save" it by taking some pain killer?
Come on. Stop demagoguery. Please.
