    And I am pissed. My business is down 5% due to the economy. Why wont Obama offer people $4500 to use my services?
    I assume this was a joke, because it doesn't make any sense otherwise.

    Really? not simple enough for you?



    I guess it's more important to you for big auto to make money, than the mom n pop gas station.

    It's more important for big auto to make money, especially when the government owns big auto.

    You just made an argument that gas guzzlers and junkers should remain on the roads so that small businesses can repair them and sell them gas. You certainly are not afraid of looking foolish, I'll give you that.

    Please cease the personal attacks, and stop trying to put words in my mouth.

    My point is, that its a lateral move. Obama is taking my money, to get others to buy cars, that will affect other businesses who rely on servicing these older cars....

    There is no economic benefit from this free lunch program.

    As a libertarian, I understand you would be against any sort of government involvement whatsoever under any circumstances, but perhaps even you can recognize this program is doing some good.
    You need to ask yourself where the government got the cash to offer. It comes from you and me. Our government feels they know better how to use that hard earned cash from our wallets than we do.

    The other question you need to ask yourself is, what will the car companies and dealers do when the program is over? What will be peoples incentive to buy cars then? I would guess that there are a lot of people that just participated in this program that were considering buying a new car in the next few months or year from now but with then incentive bought it now. That takes even more future sales away.

    Mark my words, Obama and the liberals or the car companies will be coming back to congress in a few weeks or months asking for yet more money for this program.

    Apparently Government isn't gonna suspend clunker program. Faux is hammering away on that program. Like their, and Republican, criticisms that Guvnamint run health care will bring ruin, the gang that says NO is copping large amounts of green in their efforts to gain traction against a program that is obviously building buyer confidence and sending product flying out the door.

    Like their Health care hand wringing and dooms saying they are lying and being hypocrites at the same time. With their health care claim they were offered the chance to vote against Medicate, a single payer government run health care program and they ran the other way voting 100% in favor of Medicare.

    Now, when offered the opportunity in the House of Representatives to vote their consciences about half of the republican minority voted to add funds to the Clunker program.

    Way to go guys.
