    White House, Democrats reach deal on $15 billion auto aid

    http://www.reuters.com/article/topNews/idUSWEN145820081206

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Democratic leaders and the White House reached a deal to provide billions of dollars in relief to the ailing U.S. auto industry, a senior congressional aide told Reuters on Friday.

    The package, which Democratic leaders hope to win passage of next week and send to President George W. Bush, totals between $15 billion and $17 billion, the aide said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

    The amount is far less than the $34 billion requested this week by General Motors, Ford Motor, and Chrysler, but Democratic leaders believe the money will keep them going until Barack Obama replaces Bush as president on January 20 and a new effort can be made for a rescue plan.

    Not surprised.

    They'll ask for 250 billion once Obama gets into office. They'll blame Bush for prolonging the process and creating a more dire circumstance.

    Keynesian economics rules in times where it is convenient to fund campaigns by buying votes.

    a certain group of people invest in something to make money in a venture

    if they make money, then great, they get the profit

    if they lose money and the idea fails, then you ask taxpayers for money


    wow no risk reward

    We'll see if this passes. It would be epic if even this measily plan didn't pass.
