My uncle got a brand new car at a cheap price with this program. It's great! Viva la socialism!

@supercaliforniaroll The hybrid idea is great, except most people who are driving a clunker can't afford an expensive hybrid. - thorie 0

Its alright! A few work arounds could be taken like an incentive to buying hybrids like 30% off and a lesser amount for non hybrids - _fraz_ (twitter) 0

What a horrible plan! Used car dealers are furious, they can't move their inventory due to this federal nuisance. - admin vote up image vote down image +3

The should also force the clunkers to be traded in for the purchase of Hybrid only vehicles. Otherwise, you're just trading in a clunker for a new car that just pollutes just a bit less. - supercaliforniaroll vote up image vote down image 0
