Thinking about it we know why Republicans (mainly) are against a bailout for the Auto Industry. It's really simple. It's union busting plain and simple. They have fully blames the UAW (even though it's managements fault) for the mess they are in and it's wrong.
Taking a long look if the Auto Industry fails let's see who would be hurt the most:
Well since there will not be as much of a need for steel the steel workers union would lose jobs
Since there would not as much of a need for tires the United Rubber Union would lose jobs
Since there would not be as much of a need for Mechanics the Mechanics Union would lose jobs
We are talking millions of people would be out of work if the Auto Industry cause the Republicans don't like unions. Like I said ladies and gentlemen it's union busting.
