    DETROIT — The Treasury Department is preparing a Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing for Chrysler that could come as soon as next week, people with direct knowledge of the action said Thursday.

    The Treasury has an agreement in principle with the United Automobile Workers union, whose members’ pensions and retiree health care benefits would be protected as a condition of the bankruptcy filing, said these people, who asked for anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the case.



    Moreover, Fiat of Italy would complete its alliance with Chrysler while the company is under bankruptcy protection.

    Now if only we hadn't wasted money bailing them out, and had let this happen in the first place.
