Auto bailout talks inexplicably broke down this Monday after negotiations had only reached $45,200.
Although the deal got off to an optimistic start, grumblings quickly started from various parties with no clear explanation. The problems culminated when talks completely refused to start on Monday.
"We're going to have to replace major parts of this deal before we can use it again," said Congressman Barney Frank, chair of the House Financial Services Committee. "And there are additional clauses that aren't expected to hold up past $80,000."
An unnamed source claimed that the committee was considering a move of negotiations to Japan, where they could be expected to exceed $250,000 with no problems.
