    American taxpayers doled out $24,000 per vehicle sold under the government's "Cash for Clunkers" auto program, according to a study released Wednesday.

    The report, conducted by the automotive information firm Edmunds.com in Santa Monica, Calif., found that of the nearly 690,000 vehicles sold under the program, only 125,000 of the sales could be credited directly to the Cash-for-Clunkers program.

    The rest of the sales would have happened anyway, despite the government program, the report said -- raising questions over its effectiveness.

    Thats what happens when you expect politicians to lie.
    I was telling people they wouldnt recognize America in 5 years if he got in.
    Im afraid I may be right.
