According to Boston.com the U. S. House of Representatives has just approved adding $2 billion more to the “Cash For Clunkers” program. According to the article:
“The bill was approved on a vote of 316-109. House members acted within hours of learning from Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood that the program was running out of money.”
The House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer said the additional funding would come from previously approved stimulus money. Did we give these people a blank check?
I printed this article for one reason–do you want these people running your healthcare? Has a government program ever come in under budget and saved money?
