if Ford knew the bailouts were coming, they would have never taken out loans. That would be stupid business. They roll the dice they took their chances!Well actually Ford did get screwed, they didn't get all the wage and benefit cuts GM and Chrysler did. GM and Chrysler got a thirty billion gift from Obama, for their pension and health care funds. Legacy cost ford still had to pay. Ford also is probably still paying on the loans it took out when it mortgage the company. GM and Chrysler got the bailout.
