C'mon, they asked the very folks in Ohio who directly benefit from this (auto workers, and restaurant staff who feed those workers, etc. )

I'm guessing these people are not looking big picture, or considering the opportunity cost of tying up all that bailout money. Instead of enabling GM to start cranking out Volts that they lose more than 50 grand per car on, could that have been used to boost the GDP even more spent elsewhere.
