It seems to me that if the gov't is trying to improve the environment through this handout then perhaps it should be limited to vehicles that get over, I don't know, maybe 30 mpg. Even better how about 35 or 40. Encouraging people to buy new vehicles that are slightly better on gas than their old ones is a joke. Call it what it is, more cash for the car dealers through increased sales. Too many of the new pieces of the so-called stimulus plans go to small segment of our society. This is just another form of wealth re-distribution. Come to think of it, so are the new health care bills under consideration.
Call your Congressman and Senators and tell them to stop spending your tax dollars in this manner. If they don't get then it's time to vote 'em out.
