    Cars were flying off the lots, and I'll bet everyone here knows someone who bought a car because ofthis deal.
    Well I'm sure that edmunds.com knows more about how to crunch those numbers than you or I do. Though I admit that it seems kind of flaky to compare unknown variables I still trust Edmunds to know more about that than I do.

    There's more to running any government program than the apparent cost - so I think it's safe to presume that it was definitely higher than $4,500+ per vehicles considering government-paid man hours to do the extra work, cost for processing papers and other information, cost for starting and maintainin a website and so on, so forth.

    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    I don't know anyone who bought a care because of the program. But, that doesn't matter.

    Yeah, this program did get a lot of people to buy cars. However, why is that important enough to spend public tax dollars on it?

    Seriously, I've had enough of the government bailouts and use of tax payer money to help private enterprise.
