Some New Mexico auto dealers have backed out of the cash-for-clunkers program and more may do so as the federal government takes its time providing cash reimbursements.
Dealers across the state are owed more than $3.6 million, according to a dealers’ group which says that so far Uncle Sam has only written three checks totaling about $14,000.
The whole thing ran out of cash in a week, requiring fast legislation to keep it running. By voting to use more of your money. Now they’re screwing over dealers.
The G can’t run a used car operation but they want to run your healthcare?
UPDATE: Here’s a bit of understatement from MSNBC:
Cash for Clunkers success limited by its flaws
Bureaucracy, poor planning may mar the overall impression of the program
