"Free Money Program Proves Surprisingly Popular"

From the New York Times:

The House of Representatives voted to provide an emergency $2 billion for the “cash for clunkers” program on Friday, and the White House declared the program very much alive, even though car buyers appear to have already snapped up the $1 billion that Congress originally appropriated.

Refresh my memory. When exactly did Congress decide the word “emergency” means “popular with voters”?

My 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee V8 is officially rated as 16 mpg in the city and 18 mpg on the highway. Average 16 mpg. The free money cutoff for SUV's is 15 mpg.

No soup for me.

NOTE: Lost track of where on the intertubes I found this animated graphic. Happy to credit the source here if anyhone knows who created it.

Now that is fair.

I'm really getting tired of subsidizing car purchases for people who couldn't--or wouldn't--buy a new car without my help. Oh, wait! I don't pay taxes, anyway. What was I thinking?

True. If Obama gets his way, we can just have the top 1% income earners (and small business) pay 100% of the taxes so the rest of us can get a free ride. It'll be glorious! And if we can't squeeze enough blood out of that turnip, we'll just borrow the rest from China, then destroy the currency by printing dollars. HA HA HA HA!!! The jokes on them. We all get new cars, they get repaid in worthless currency. Its brilliant.
