    Were a person finances a car holds it for less than the loan term and then combines the loan of the old car with that of a newer car.

    That is what we have been experiencing lately. This program gives the incentive for that to continue to happen.

    I've owned a total of 3 cars in my life, the first 2 I paid cash for and they were very used, the 2nd was almost a real junker and my last one I financed at crazy terms.

    I finally paid it off last March and do not want to go through that ever again.

    If CARS is such a smashing success, what is Dear Leader hiding?

    Why the misinformation?

    Why the secrecy?
    Because it's a complete Charlie Foxtrot. That's why.

    I bought a wrecker yestersay, so I can cash in all those repos that are going to be popping up in a few months. I should have all the formalities settled by monday and I'll be the newest repo company in town.

    The best part, is when some of those folks have to bring their cars back, ebcause the CFC money didn't make it to the dealer and their clunker is being turned into cast iron lawn furniture in China. I wonder what cutesy little name their gonna give to that bailout.

    Obama administration withholds data on program

    Obama administration withholds data on program
    Aug 4 01:08 PM US/Eastern
    By BRETT J. BLACKLEDGE
    Associated Press Writer


    WASHINGTON (AP) - The Obama administration is refusing to release government records on its "cash-for-clunkers" rebate program that would substantiate—or undercut—White House claims of the program's success, even as the president presses the Senate for a quick vote for $2 billion to boost car sales.

    Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood said Sunday the government would release electronic records about the program, and President Barack Obama has pledged greater transparency for his administration. But the Transportation Department, which has collected details about 157,000 rebate requests, won't release sales data that dealers provided showing how much U.S. car manufacturers are benefiting from the $1 billion initially pumped into the program.

    The Associated Press has sought release of the data since last week. But the public and Senate Republicans demanding more information will have to wait for details because federal officials running the program don't have time to turn over data delivered by car dealers, said Rae Tyson, spokesman for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

    LaHood said in an interview Sunday he would make the electronic records available. "I can't think of any reason why we wouldn't do it," he said.

    DOT officials already have received electronic details from car dealers of each trade-in transaction. The agency regularly analyzes the data internally, producing helpful talking points for LaHood, White House spokesman Robert Gibbs and other officials to use when urging more funding.

    Full Story


    This transparent administration, is the most non-transparent one I've ever seen. They can't seem to come clean on anything.

    Are they actually withholding it or is it just not done?

    The point is, Obama and the democrats are trying to obtain another 2 billion dollars based on the reported success of the program. Don't you think congress, as well as the public, needs to see the data that proves that another 2 billion is warranted?

    The Transportation Department said it will provide the data as soon as possible but did not specify a time frame or promise release of the data before the Senate votes whether to spend $2 billion more on the program.

    So much for "the most transparent Administration in History.. this is the which lied about cover up here?
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.
