Oh puh-leeze, the Cash for Clunker Crybabies have just about pushed me to the limits.
First, when the program had been operation for just ten days, an owner of 20 dealerships in the east was crying about how long it took to do the paperwork for Cash for Clunkers. He was bitchin’ because he had to pay a clerk (probably making $10 an hour) to sit in front of a computer for a few hours to submit the paperwork to collect $4,500 free money collected from you and me.
Now the paperwork is in the gummit’s hands, here’s the National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) aka CFCC (Cash for Clunker Crybabies) are crying they aren’t getting their money quick enough.
The National Automobile Dealers Association estimates that dealers have hundreds— and in some cases thousands — of applications pending that are
“worth hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars.”
Peter Kitzmiller, president of the 325-member Maryland Automobile Dealers Association said:
“It is ludicrous at this point, We’ve got deals that are just sitting there waiting to be reviewed. The customer is gone, the car is gone, and you don’t have your money.”
Damn Republicans. (And new car dealers are all Republicans.) They cry that something needs to be done to save the U.S. car business. Obama does something.
They cry that Obama is moving too fast on the stimulus.
They cry that the stimulus idea is bad for the economy. Cars fly out of the showrooms at record pace – after 18 months of gathering dust. Factories go on overtime to keep up with demand.
They cry that they aren’t getting their money fast enough. They want quicker turn-around. They want bigger goverment to handle the Cash for Clunkers program.
By the end of the week, up to 1,100 people will be working full time to process cash for clunker reimbursements.
They cry that government is getting too big.
How long would you sit (or pay someone to sit) in front of a computer to collect $4,500?
Damn Cash for Clunker Crybabies. They give money to McCain, cry that Obama got elected, line up at the public trough and then cry that the slop is too sour.
