The National Automobile Dealers Association is urging the federal gov’t to shut down the “cash for clunkers” program immediately. Why? IT DOESN’T WORK. That is what happens when the socialists in charge have their way, they develop plans that waste your money, and then claim it was good. I’m going to go out on a limb here, and suggest that when they quietly close the “cash for clunkers” program, the democrats are going to brag that they “saved SO much money with this program,” and “it cost a lot less than they originally anticipated, saving the taxpayers millions of dollars” (because they shut it down early). Look for it.
Now here’s the quotes form the auto dealers:
Imagine these quotes as coming from DOCTORS about “ObamaCare.”
- 97% of dealers who responded, say the government is not reimbursing fast enough
- 13% of dealers have dropped out the program because the government is not reimbursing fast enough
- 87% percent of dealers are concerned the money will be exhausted
- 3% of CARS program deals have been reimbursed
- 66% of dealers have not received one payment from the government
- 25% of dealers are experiencing severe cash flow problems that require short-term loans to alleviate
- 11% of submitted applications have been approved (though dealers still are waiting for the money)
- 16% of submitted applications have been rejected
- 55% of dealers are not confident they will get reimbursed for every deal
- 40% do not want the program to continue, even if changes are made to the CARS program
These car dealers are just a microcosm of what is to come if Obama and the democrats cram this socialized healthcare plan down our throats.
There IS a better (free market) solution. See www.HealthCareTransformation.net for more.
TORT REFORM ALONE would save billions:
- reduced insurance payouts for lawsuits (and LAWYERS) leads to
- reduced insurance costs leads to
- reduced malpractice insurance costs for doctors which leads to
- reduced charges to the customer (you!) which leads to
- more money in your pocket and more choices!!
See! There IS a better way! And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
