The fight in the Senate is about tying bailout money to job retention, so the companies can't fire everyone anyway and then buy back more of their stock because it is so cheap. Keeping jobs - and health insurance - is more efficient than just putting all the money into unemployment insurance. Though that needs to be sweetened also.
