The auto bankruptcy is too big just to use the regular bankruptcy law. These are not just any companies. The auto industry is the foundation of American industry. So why shouldn’t Congress pass an industry specific bailout law that would contain many provisions of ordinary bankruptcy, which could also have specific requirements for executives’ and workers’ salaries, hybrid mileage requirements, etc. In addition, some people say the credit crisis will prevent normal bankruptcy from functioning as it should because there will not be sufficient credit available to allow the companies to operate under Chapter 11.
