    Re: Obama administration withholds data on clunkers

    They are trying to keep lid on many facts.
    1. They were trying to boost sales of cars of the Big three American Car companies but forgot to limit the program only to those cars.
    2. Most of the sales are imports.
    3. The dangerous hazardous waste produced by destroying perfectly good car's engines are a problem.
    4. The benefits to those who take advantage of the program are minimal at best and the costs far exceed any benefits by a wide margin.

    Other than that and maybe more it's working just fine.

    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.

    .
    Takes time to collect and report that much data, so I can believe that the administration isn't eager to issue incomplete info.

    All the more reason to hold off on releasing more money...

    Assembly yes but are all the parts made in the US? Where do profits go?

    Our US partner handles sales and implementation in the US. We sell product to them at a price that basically lets them break even. The R&D and other high value work is kept out of the US due to taxes and the political climate.
