Submission + - SPAM: Obama to sign "Cash for Clunker" bill 3

coondoggie writes: "That old car of yours may soon be worth more to you than you think. A $1 billion cash-for-clunkers bill has been sent to President Obama for his signature, after the Senate approved the bill as part of a broader $106 billion war spending package. The idea is to stimulate car sales by offering as much as $4,500 to owners of older cars who trade in older, less-efficient vehicles. The act will go into effect 30 days after the president signs the bill, and will run through October 31. [spam URL stripped]"

  • Instead of redistributing our wealth in forms that those contributing will probably not benefit from, why not just reduce taxes for everyone?
