    Yes. the program was so successful that they have to triple the number of people working on the claims. It cleared out dealers inventories and put people back to work.

    Did you read the article? Did you see the part where there is NO perceivable system for the reimbursements? Chaos is a mild word to describe what's going on.

    Yes I read it, did you?

    "Billion thinks he'll get all his money eventually, it just may take longer than what the government first said."

    The dealers are getting the money, it's just taking more time because no one foresaw how successful the program would be.

    Fast forward to: "You'll get your heart transplant eventually, it's just taking more time because no one saw how successful the program would be."

    The Clunker program was NOT a success, it likely just created an artificial bump in the economy.

    It's so successful dealers were backing out of the program due to government non-payment.

    Oh, and when we say "create jobs"....we mean life-long careers....not temp work that will only last a few weeks.

    It did what it was supposed to do, that you don't agree with the program is another matter.

    No that's the point, it hasn't don what it's supposed to do....you said it yourself, dealers haven't been paid.

    Or are you saying the program was supposed to screw dealers out of cash?

    Every large program starts out with troubles. When the program is short lived, like CARS, it does not get those problems worked out during the life of the program. With longer programs, the initial kinks do tend to get worked out while the program is running.

    That was about 200 dealers out of over 50,000 dealers nationwide. Not really significant.
