Quotes-start.png "In agreeing to lend the automakers $17.4 billion, Bush really had no options. GM and Chrysler would have run out of money by the end of the month, a failure that could have resulted in the loss of up to three million middle-class jobs next year. On top of the two million jobs lost this year, such a blow would have deepened a recession that is already the worst in a quarter-century." Quotes-end.png
