    • On June 08, 2009, by Waiting2Trade - 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.
