But can they sell a bailout of that magnitude to the American people?
The largest recipient of AIG bailout money was Goldman Sachs, which received a cool $13 billion.
A few days ago he suggested that taxpayers might actually make money from the $700 billion bailout of Wall Street.
He also blasted the 2008 bailout only to reverse his position within days.

If that happens, the music biz may be looking for its own bailout package and none will be forthcoming.
Since the bailout, GM has posted 15 consecutive quarters of profitability, and it has a very solid balance sheet.
