Gummint Car Care

Oh yah.

Hundreds of auto dealers in the New York area have withdrawn from the government's Cash for Clunkers program, citing delays in getting reimbursed by the government, a dealership group said Wednesday.

The Greater New York Automobile Dealers Association, which represents dealerships in the New York metro area, said about half its 425 members have left the program because they cannot afford to offer more rebates. They're also worried about getting repaid. --AP

Nationalized ObamaCare should be a snap compared to trading in a car, no?

This is a perfect example of "we're much smarter than you" that comes from government. An industry that lives on rebates, has systems and methods to support them without a hitch and the governement can't figure out how to work within that, it has to build it's own and fail!

OH, but health care...that one they have ALLLL the answers for!

Word on the street is that locally, Boucher has stopped the delivering vehicles under the CARS program as well.

I saw a report on FOX about Gummint health care on Reservations. Not pretty at all. I think I'll call a buddy of mine who's a Native, see what he has to say.

Good…, as they say, all good things come to an end. Actually, this could be considered a BAD thing b/c it’s CRAZY, we are giving people money to live more vicariously and lavishly than before all this economical bust took place? What are we doing? Spoiling every single last American? Let’s learn to live in moderation, then we wouldn’t have so much debt…Well, the fish sticks from the the head is the While House…right?
