    Govt to suspend Cash for Clunkers program

    News | Opelika-Auburn News

    <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."
    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?

    Wow....that's quite a spin. Just the opposite was true.

    The program proved so popular that what they thought would take several months to use up the funds, actually used up the funds in about a week.
    Good news for the auto industry which is hoping that there can be funding to continue the program.

    How you can argue that such a popular program was "unpopular" and a flop defies logic.

    Wow, they've gone through the whole $1 billion already, possibly?

    That's wild.

    Why do you think that? They've been supporting Social Security and Medicare all these years.

    Eh, I figured the sarcasm was obvious. I tried to overdo it as much as I could.

    Re: Govt to suspend Cash for Clunkers program

    It will be interesting to see how high new car sales jump, if this $1 Billion has actuallly been used up already on this cash for clunkers deal. For some reason, I remain skeptical that Americans have traded in $1 Billion worth of clunker cars in one week and thus purchased several billions more in new car sales in that same week.

    I'll wait for that report.

    There ain't been a billion bucks worth of junkers traded in, in just a week. Smells fishy, to me.

    I don't know what the actual numbers will show. However, I do know that a couple of my friends who are in the Auto Sales business, have told me that it has been an absolute madhouse with people coming to the carlots to participate in the program.
