Default Remember that POS Bill "Cash For Clunkers"?

It was too narrow to begin with, and wasn't going to help much anyway, but it just got worse. Reneg much, Obama?

http://autos.yahoo.com/articles/auto...NvbmZ1c2lvbg--


NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- Some car shoppers are finding that their trade-in vehicles, which qualified for a Cash for Clunkers rebate last week, don't this week thanks to changes in the EPA's fuel economy ratings.

Not to mention this was probably the most futile effort in the world. Taking a handful of older cars off the road and replacing them with only slightly better ones is going to do jack shit for the environment. Especially when China seems to have an entire division of government scientists working on new ways to belch as much smoke and chemicals into the air as humanly possible. Nice Don Quixote-style path we're on here.

I can't help but think that this is a sign of how "efficiently" the new government run healthcare will work...

"Wait, we changed the income standards today...we'll need that kidney we just transplanted into you back!"

It'd be more like "Sorry, here's a huge tax bill instead! ... Oh, and we gave the kidney to an immigrant from Mexico, and you paid for that too."

Well, more accurately, after I filled out 300 pages in triplicate of redundant paperwork, was put a ten month waiting list, and had my kidney transplanted INSTEAD of my heart, which was what was really ailing me, when they asked for the kidneys back I'd probably wish for death from dealing with such great "government efficiency" anyway...

Socialized healthcare...can't wait!

Sorry, you don't qualify. There are more deserving illegal aliens that need it.

Still in love with my Full Size Conversion Van. Might go get a used car some time here soon, but guess what I'm not going to do. I'm not going to trade in my 2001 Malibu with 130,000 miles on it, but still works, for a $35,000 Car.

How about these Car Companies actually LOWER THEIR MF'in PRICES! and then maybe, they will sell more cars?

How about that?

But no, they couldn't do that.

Housing market has completely collapsed and houses that were worth $250,000 2 years ago are now going for $175,000 or less, but Cars, Not Cars, nope. Freaking Cars are up there in the $15,000 - $45,000 range and we are supposed to buy them?

F Off UAW. F Off GM. When I want a "New" Car, I'll be buying a Used Ford.

Oh, and another thing...And I'm serious...How does the South Korean Owned Car Company Hyundai qualify to give out "Government Sponsored Rebates" to people who buy their car? Why is US Tax Payer Dollars helping a FCKING SOUTH KOREAN FCKING CAR COMPANY!!!!

Seriously...why is that happening?
