…why not spend the money more wisely? If you’re going to spend my hard-earned taxpayer dollars anyway, spend them in a way that might actually make a difference:

Spend $2000 and buy used cars for eligible applicants. (i.e. single parents.) Give them a $500 voucher for car insurance that can be used at any car insurance company, and a $400 gas card that can be used at any gas station. (And by “any” we do mean “any”.) Pay for their vehicle registration for 2 years (about $100.)

This would then give the same number of people — 222,222 — a vehicle that can get them to a job, to the grocery store, and let them drive their kids to the doctor’s office. It’s also $333,334,000 cheaper than the $1,000,000,000 the government is spending on Cash For Clunkers.
