According to, President Obama criticized debt holders for forcing Chrysler's bankruptcy at this stage. President Obama singled out hedge funds and other financial institutions for turning down administration loan-reduction proposals. The president said the following:

I don’t stand with those who held out when everyone else is making sacrifices ... A group of investment firms and hedge funds decided to hold out for the prospect of an unjustified taxpayer-funded bailout.
In a few words, the hedge funds were banking on the fact that everyone else would make sacrifices, with several firms demanding "twice the return that other lenders were getting."
