Congress poked its head up out of the gopher hole with a $4,500 incentive to trade in your gas guzzlers for new, fuel-efficient rides. The House passed the bill yesterday on a 298-119 vote.
President Barack Obama has supported the plan as a way to help struggling automakers and improve the fuel efficiency of the cars and trucks on the road.
Huh. That incentive might have helped struggling automakers even more six or 12 months ago.
Now that the Administration has run two of three American car makers out of business, it is too bad the only place left to trade is either Government Motors or Overseas, Inc.
Remember you and you and you voted for these turkeys. A few of us voted against ’em but that makes me no less doomed.
