Cash for Clunkers Suspended, Meck Deck Right Again

Hey, what do you know, we’re 100% correct again.

The other day we pointed out how screwed up the federal Cash for Clunkers program was, predicted much angst, and lo and behold now the program has been suspended after only four days. The official tale is a bottleneck at NHTSA on approving the trades, but given the confusion caused by the EPA’s last minute changes to the rules of the program, this should be no surprise.

In other words, another federal program that promised something for nothing winds up tripping all over itself. Do tell.

    Pro union Obama and his democratic friends in Detroit must be having the greatest week ever. The unions have now found a way to get the taxpayer to pay through the nose.
