    Business & Technology | Popular $1 billion 'cash for clunkers' program out of money | Seattle Times Newspaper


    So cash for clunkers, a program by the current congress and administration, is already broke. I think that this example shows what will happen when they try to do health care. They will run out of money faster than planned and end up rationing care.

    Because it actually did what it was proposed to do.

    I don't agree with most of Scarborough's stance on issues, but he was dead on this morning discussing this program.

    sounds like ALL of the stimulus, should have been put in to OUR HANDS, similar to this program...IT WORKED! it definitely was a good, productive, stimulus.

    I hope they take back some of their other stimulus programs that are NON productive and put the money in to this program....

    I can agree with this sentiment 100%.

    I like cash for clunkers.

    I used to worry about the health care reform bill that Obama is trying to ram down our throats getting passed in the dead of night like so many other bad bills the Democrats toss out to the public. I'm not worried about the health care bill at all any more. It isn't going to pass so there is no need to keep worring about it. This has been exposed for what it is and that is a collection of very bad ideas that the American public is not going to tolerate. I think you're going to find that this is indeed Obama's "Waterloo". This bill, and your beloved socialist President are toast. Let's all sit back and see what the next trillion dollar boondoggle will be. The cash for clunkers program, while having a bit of possibilities, is still an area that the government has no business with their fingers in. Nowhere in the Constitution does it say that the government can sell cars or promote the auto industry. While the lawmakers are on their summer break maybe they could take a little bit of time and actually read the Constitution. That is what they should be discussing when they return from the break - not stupid ideas like the Obama Health Care Reform Bill or cash for clunkers.

    Today the senate held up the additional 2 billion dollar funding proposal to fix this by the house.

    I hope this stuff doesn't happen IF we are dumb enough to let our failure of a govt run health care.
