    There is a difference between a LOAN and a BAILOUT.

    A lot of the Automakers took loans from the FED, even Toyota and BMW. The difference is Ford, Toyota and BMW will actually pay back their loans.

    The bailouts of GM and Chrysler have cost the American taxpayers BILLIONS.

    The article I linked asked if Ford would have gotten the terms it did from the free market.

    But you're right -- we've lost our money to the UAW by way of GM and Chrysler, and we'll never get it back.

    I plan on buying a vehicle next year. I love Chevy trucks, but I will not buy a new one. I'll buy used so I don't reward GM's irresponsible behavior.

    Oh, no doubt, it's a good commercial, and really tweaks GM and Chrysler.
