In a severe blow to radical left wing liberals who promote socialist agendas, the government has decided that it should suspend a program that was brought forth via Democratic "stimulus plans." It's obvious that the American public has spoken. They will not give in to radical views that support the redistribution of wealth or support the "global warming" conspiracy. No good can come out of liberal stimulus packages. In fact, the decision to suspend this program is proof that a stimulus would not work. If the American public was receptive to such an idea, why suspend such an obviously unpopular program?<snip>
Even before the suspension, some in Congress were seeking more money for the auto sales stimulus. Rep. Candice Miller, R-Mich., wrote in a letter to House leaders on Wednesday requesting additional funding for the program.
"This is simply the most stimulative $1 billion the federal government has spent during the entire economic downturn," Miller said Thursday. "The federal government must come up with more money, immediately, to keep this program going."
Brendan Daly, a spokesman for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said they would work with "the congressional sponsors and the administration to quickly review the results of the initiative."
General Motors Co. spokesman Greg Martin said Thursday the automaker hopes "there's a will and way to keep the CARS program going a little bit longer."
