    WASHINGTON (CNNMoney.com) -- The House on Tuesday waded deeper into the rescue of the troubled auto industry when it passed a $4 billion plan to subsidize new cars sales for consumers who scrap old ones.

    By a vote of 298-119, the House approved the "cash for clunkers" program.

    The measure would give consumers vouchers worth as much as $4,500 to turn in gas guzzlers and buy new cars that are more fuel efficient.

    House passes cash for clunker bill to boost new car sales - Jun. 9, 2009

    Would someone please tell me what this has to do with the War supplemental? Still further, now the Govt. is in the used car business?

    The excuse will be junkyards already turned in the titles...lots of old clunk's still around for little of nothing. It simply is not a well thought out plan. Adding to peoples debt and national debt is not good.
