In 1979, Congress bailed out Chrysler. And on January 2nd, 2009, to mark the thirtieth anniversary, they were bailed out again, with no less than $4 000 000 000,-. (Reuters article).

In 1979, Tom Paxton wrote a song about it, and, sadly, in 2009, that song still makes perfect sense. Listen to Arlo Guthrie performing it. No doubt you'll enjoy it. I really can't say anything about this that the song didn't put in better words.
