From Rasmussen:

A majority of Americans nationwide believe General Motors should have gone through the regular bankruptcy process instead of allowing the federal government to take over in exchange for bailout money.

Survey Shows Doctors Fear Lower Incomes In The Future

USA Today reports on, and links to, an interesting survey of thousands of doctors. If you have a family member or friend in the healthcare field, make sure they read this.
