I love it, the federal gubmints "cash for clunkers" program is out of money already, not even a full week into the program. The $1,000,000,000.00 was supposed to last into October, but the gubmint found out (not surprisingly) that when you give money away, people will be lining up at the door! Same thing is gonna happen to gubmint health care. When doctors visits are "free" under the gubmint HMO, people will be lining up outside the door for every little sniffle and rash, looking for a "free" prescription and it will cost us taxpayers much, much more than the trillions already projected. But we're going to save sooooo much money giving out Obama "inhalators". LOL What I see is another well meaning gubmint program that is going to hurt the weakest citizens. Hows that you say? Easy. Who can buy a new car nowadays. People with good credit or people that have a lot of cash. So basically, you are giving "rich people" (the ones who can obtain financing or buy it outright) $4,500 to get rid of their SUV that gets 18mpg or less, and buy a new SUV that gets a few mpg more. Stick with me here...... Can people with poor credit, and no cash buy new cars? Probably not because the banks have had enough trouble with "risky" loans. So what kind of cars do lower income people buy? Used cars! But wait, all the trade ins from the C4C program must be destroyed. This will inflate the prices on the used car market, so the lower income folks get hit the hardest! Gotta love these well meaning idiots.
