State bailouts in the event of an emergency can be controversial. In 2008, debates raged over whether and how to save the bankrupt auto industry in the United States. Those who oppose it, such as pro-free market radio station Hugh Hewitt, said the bailout was unacceptable. He argued that businesses should be organically dismantled by free market forces in order to allow entrepreneurs to emerge from the ashes; whereas the rescue plan signals lower trade standards for large companies, providing incentives to take risks and ensuring safety nets that should not be taken into account in the business equations, but which are unfortunately taken into account, are morally risky; and that a bailout promotes centralized bureaucracy by allowing government powers to choose the terms of the bailout. In addition, state bailouts are criticized as corporate welfare, which fosters corporate irresponsibility. United Airlines and Alaska Airlines said they expect to conclude their agreements with the Treasury in the coming days. The Economic Stability Act of 2008, often referred to as the „2008 Bank Bailout,“ was proposed by Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson, passed by the 110th U.S. Congress and signed by President George W. Bush. The law entered into force on 3 October 2008, in the midst of the 2007-2008 financial crisis, under public law 110-343. The law created the $700 billion Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) to buy toxic assets from banks.

This is how we hesitated and Penny Kneifen on the agenda, delaying the big decision – on the EUR 2 000 billion rescue plan – until mid-June, if it is believed that the EU Heads of State and Government can meet in person. This is important, because in reality, when EU heads of state and government meet in Brussels to discuss these contentious issues, there is usually a lot of „bargaining“ for which one leader agrees to back another`s plan in exchange for the support of another independent draft EU directive that is at the Brussels mill. The issue of federal bailout operations of banks and corporations became an important issue in the election, with the Tea Party movement focusing in particular on rescue operations.  On November 24, 2008, U.S. Republican Congressman Ron Paul (R-TX) wrote: „By saving companies that fail, they confiscate money from productive members of the economy and give it to failures. By helping companies with outdated or unsustainable business models, the government prevents their resources from being liquidated and made available to other companies that can use them more efficiently and productively. One of the essential elements of a healthy free market is that success and failure must be tolerated if they are deserved. But instead of a bailout, the rewards are nullified – the profits of successful companies are attributed to failures.
I do not know how it is good for our economy. It won`t work. It can`t work….
