They could have given the loan on the condition that the automakers start building only cars and mass transit that reduce our dependency on oil.
They could have given the loan on the condition that the automakers build cars that reduce global warming.
They could have given the loan on the condition that the automakers withdraw their many lawsuits against state governments in their attempts to not comply with our environmental laws.
They could have given the loan on the condition that the management team which drove these once-great manufacturers into the ground resign and be replaced with a team who understands the transportation needs of the 21st century.

With Cold, Incisive Rage...
With cold, incisive rage, Michael Moore has nailed the screaming, incompetent, heartless, idiotic and disastrous outrage of the mean, lowlife Repugnant senators who sank the bailout of the single most important industry in the United State of Arrogance (well, next after the weapons and pharmaceutic/narcotics industries, I suppose).
Read the rest here, where Moore also roasts the Bankers of Illusion (mass media) for spinning this to slime the unions, as if this was their fault! To all of this I can only add that a strong and informed working middle class is the bulwark of democracy.
