    Cash for Hummers: Taxpayers Foot the Bill for Guzzler Upgrades -- Politics Daily

    When the House passed the $2 billion addition to "Cash for Clunkers" last week, President Obama touted the environmental benefits of the soon-to-be $3 billion taxpayer funded program, promising it will "help lessen our dangerous dependence on foreign oil, while reducing greenhouse gas emissions and improving the quality of the air we breathe."

    But will buying a new Hummer H-3, Chevy Suburban or Ford F-250 Super Duty pickup really reduce America's craving for crude? Somebody thinks so, because they're all eligible new cars under the Cash for Clunkers program, which gives a $3,500 to $4,500 credit to car buyers trading in older gas guzzlers for more fuel-efficient cars.

    What a frikin joke....If there really was a threat to the climate do you really think washington would be allowing this to happen?
    All this is, is another way for our corrupt idiot government to use your money to help other people buy gas guzzlers that the government now owns...
    Have you figured this out yet people?
    Gov owns the car manufacturer...Gov uses stimulus money (your tax money) to help other people buy the very cars they own...Might just be the scam of all scams!
