Now I’m all upset about the Cash for Clunkers program. Should we really be encouraging proven Clunker-buyers to purchase more cars? Aren’t they likely to purchase the Clunkers of the future? I say; take away the car, the keys, the license, the auto loan, and let these folks take the bus for a couple of years. Show them the error of their ways, from the lofty vantage point of a bus window.
Update: It has been pointed out to me that my negative opinion about C4C is shared by many right-wingers, who want to see it fail for political reasons. So I’ll be converting my opinion to one in favor of the program, but so gradually that no one will notice the difference.
