About a month ago, I posted a horribly unfair screed about the "Cash for Clunkers" program enacted by Congress to help spur car sales.
My thesis was that the program was too restrictive and that no one would be able to take part.
Boy, was I wrong. It turns out Congress screwed up in the other direction. The program - which started last Friday and was supposed to go until November or until the $1 billion allocation was used up - is out of money. In one week.
Today, the president and Congress added $2 billion in stimulus funds to keep the party rolling. Keep in mind that this is all taxpayer money, so when the guy next door shows off his new BMW, tell him you want to drive your portion of it.
Anyway, let this be a lesson: Any jackass can start a blog. Shame on YOU for believing what you read!
