    Watch what happens here.

    His unhappiness stems from a couple hundred payments (from 5 stores) that he has not gotten and advice on the web-site.

    They have described it to me as a corrupt scam.

    But hey, what do they know???????????
    It looks like most of the big dealers in St. Louis have better than 200+ clunkers x 4500 =900,000.00 getting stiffed for half will likely bankrupt most. Even drug out over 3-6 months will hurt them bad.

    Ask yourself - Was that the original intent? Saves having to close dealers down. Or is it just another bit of ethanol stupidity? The law of unintended consequences.

    The gooberment is trying to get the checks out this week. They didn't print enough money initially so they are printing more. If the goobs say this week, the dealers can expect thier money by Halloween.

    This excercise is nothing more than the continued efforts of "the Obama" to redistribute wealth.

    Just like health care.

    Take money from those that have it and GIVE it to those that don't.

    End of story!!

    Just saw a story on our loacl news last night about three of our biggest dealers who have recieved ZERO money so far....... Most have 100+ cars and one said they have 250 that they are waiting for payment on. Funny, try that with the IRS.......

    What I don't understand in this "spread the wealth" cabinet is that they offer $4500 for your car for who? The people who can already afford a new vehicle or are willing to go further into debt at this time? It doesn't make any sense...we're supposed to be spreading that wealth. What the heck ever happened that statement...

    ...believe me I don't want it. My grandparent/parents made their way and I'll make mine.

    Why the heck scrap all those clunkers? Why not keep your word Mr. Obama and give them to my neighbors who are young, lost their jobs, have children and are losing their home and don't really have a decent vehicle to drive that's dependable so they can look for that new job. There's lots of people near me who are trying hard to get out of the gutter. Oh sure, some don't care to stay there but many just need a break in life...but I guess Obama would rather pass on giving them this chance.

    Yep, just keep listening to Obama, a real man of his word...my arse.

    People forget that Bill Clinton ran on the "change" theme too.

    Obama...keep your change buddy...I drive 2 cars with cancer all over them. One with 150,000 miles, and one with 350,000 (a chevy truck). I ain't complaining, I'm blessed to even have that. I'm blessed to wake up in the morning, but some of my neighbors, they voted for you, they believed in you and they're driving junk worse than what I drive or as bad. Why don't you keep your word and spread the wealth to help out your supporters...

    I was a Bush man and he handed out millions to start this mess, now Nobama's doin' the same thing. He didn't learn anything from Bush did he?

    Go back home Obama...where ever that may be!

    I drove past a lot that had spray painted CC on and some of them were very nice. Maybe they could have given the cars to the folks who could really use one then they could pay for insurance for them selves.
