Auto Bailouts Hardly Over With...

Sure, the President un-Constitutionally and illegally directed the expenditure of $17+Bn to the Big3, less FoMoCo.

And sure, the Fed suddenly decided that GMAC was really a Bank, despite all those quibbles about equity interests--thus springing $6Bn into that entity.

But the Fat Lady hasn't sung yet:

The Treasury Department says it will decide on a case-by-case basis whether other companies connected to the struggling automotive industry should be provided emergency aid from the government's $700 billion bailout pot.

President George W. Bush reversed course on Dec. 19 and announced a $17.4 billion rescue package for teetering auto giants, General Motors Corp. and Chrysler LLC, which were burning through cash and bleeding jobs.

Can you say "Delphi"?
