I just want to put his bit of information out there for all to ponder... This program has the ability to hurt the middle class and poor people in more ways than one...
- Many CARS vehicles are still a reliable, cost effective alternative for poorer consumers to purchase, but will be destroyed.
- Used car dealerships are losing their potential inventory to the program (hurting small business owners)
-All the used parts that scrap yards and recyclers would have resold are destroyed.
-It's actually wasteful and counterproductive to be"going green" (if that's your mantra) You are replacing old with new - but think of all the energy wasted in destroying a useful vehicle to get a more "efficient" (by 2 mpg as program requires)vehicle. We should be repairing vehicles and keeping good maintenance.
-Unwitting individuals may be actually less than vehicle's worth...
This just seems especially offensive when we are in this recession.

No I will not be turning my van into the cash for clunkers, because I can not afford a new car.
Who really cares if I drive a 2002 Pontiac Montana! I have one of the last Pontiac's to drive still.
It's mine and it is 100% paid for!
