The Democrats (and some Republicans, alas!) don’t get it yet, but the American people appear to be tired of politicians wasting their money. Rasmussen Reports observes:
Fifty-four percent (54%) of Americans oppose any further funding for the federal “cash for clunkers” program which encourages the owners of older cars to trade them in for newer, more fuel-efficient ones.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 33% of adults think Congress should authorize additional funding to keep the program going now that the original $950 million allocated for it has run out. Thirteen percent (13%) are not sure.
These numbers are virtually identical to the findings in mid-June just after Congress first approved the plan when 35% favored it while 54% were opposed.
Senators should to consult their constituents before they vote more money for this clunker of a program.
