    Obama administration withholds data on clunkers


    Obama administration withholds data on clunkers


    WASHINGTON The Obama administration is refusing to quickly 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.

    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.

    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 on 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.


    So is this another example of "transparency in government" as promised? It is obvious to everyone the reason the "numbers are not ready" is to delay the bad press Obama will recieve for this ill concieved deck chair arrangment exercise on the titanic.
    You should try to remember, ideas are conveyed by researching information, vetting sources, and confirming said information. Not by regurgitating talking points given to you by your "news" station.

    Well, I heard this morning on the radio that the Top 10 trade in list is out, along with the Top 10 buyers list.

    Your not going to believe what people are buying and what they are trading in.....lol.

    No SUVs made the Top 10 list on either side......lol. 1990s Cherokees and Grand Cherokees I want to say were the biggest vehciles on the list for trade ins. So much for getting gas guzzlers off the road eh?

    Since when is a Grand Cherokee not an SUV? And why is this the third posting of this topic, did someone assume this was a new subject?
