Government Suspends Cash-For-Clunkers Program.

The Detroit Free Press (7/31, Hyde) reports, "The US government will suspend the popular cash-for-clunkers program after less than four days in business, telling Congress that the plan would burn through its $950-million budget by midnight," according to sources.

Re: Government Suspends Cash-For-Clunkers Program.

Ultimately I'm pretty much against giving away money to anyone in an attempt to jump start the economy as it is basically a random tax break given to whoever happens to own a clunker, some rich, some poor.

But this program does remove heavier polluting and less fuel efficient vehicles from the roadways while simultaneously moving aged auto inventory and keeping auto dealers in business by allowing them to actually work. In turn the car dealers will pay more income taxes, keep machanics hired, salesmen will make commissions, new cars will get ordered, trucks will ship parts to car factories, car factories will hum, waiters at the restaurant next to the car dealership will make tips, etc... This is all economic stimulus.

The program is out of $ so soon because it has been a wildly successful portion of the economic stimulus package.

I'm officially...Stroke-less.

So is WELFARE (wildly successful)! Hell who doesn't want something for nothing! So now they want to print more money to prop it up. When all this stimulus "works" then they can tax the $hit out of everybody they "put back to work"
F__in brilliant plan!

Re: Government Suspends Cash-For-Clunkers Program.

Wow, real shocker. Another BS plan that dug us deeper into debt. What a waste. I am glad this dumbass is in office so EVERYONE can see just how f*cked up the left way of thinking really is and how it will NEVER work.
