Now, which car companies are failing?

Alabama's Republican Senator Richard Shelby has been contrasting the "failing" Big 3 Detroit car makers to the "successful" right-to-work companies of the south, like Toyota, which has an engine producing plant in Huntsville, AL, in his attempts to fight any bailout of the American auto industry.

While it might be convenient for Senator Shelby to suggest that Toyota is doing and managed well, the Japanese car company is losing money and "facing an unprecedented emergency." Will Shelby be calling for 60% of management and 40% of workers to go in Huntsville as he called upon the Big 3 or if things continue to "go south" for Toyota will Shelby broker for some of those bailout dollars?
