    Wait a minute — encourage the purchase of new cars by offering vouchers, but you /only/ get the voucher if you promise to destroy the old car?

    So that means the people who can’t afford new cars will have fewer used (and therefore cheaper) cars to choose from.

    How about slash spending and abolish the income tax instead?

    The only reason for this would be to put Americans in even more debt. Great idea!

    I like the bill that congress is for better, H.R.1550. Which gives more for your older car. Whats the purpose of getting these vouchers if there not going to be worth more than your trade in value? The Senate needs to get it together.

    I’m for HR 1550 but not S.247, keep the bill as is in the House and stop waisting Americans time going back and forth. I’m WAITING 2 TRADE! and so is America.

    There isn’t anything in the constitution that gives congress the authority to do this. I am one taxpayer that does not want to fund a program like this.

    Its ok to give billions to bailout various banks, insurance companies, car companies, etc. but to help out Mom and Dad to buy a new car the claws come out. Surely we can use some of the stimulus money to help out American family’s and the car manufacturing industry’s. I know car sales are stagnant right now and this bill will kick star the economy.

    Pass this bill to help new car sales and the manufacturing industry (JOBS). Our daughter drives an older SUV (15 mpg) and I would very much like to trade it for a newer more fuel efficient vehicle. But when you go to trade as you well know you don’t get much for your trade with having an older car, making it discouraging to want to buy a new car. I do know people are WAITING for this to pass and by WAITING it only hurts car sales even more. That’s why its so important to get this passed as soon as possible. It worked in Europe to stimulate the economy it will work here too. The House got it right, now if only the Senate will get it together. The President’s for it and the American people are too. This needs to be done a.s.a.p.
